The Updated Website Review Report Is Now Available

The latest in the series of Adaptistration publications is now available; The Adaptistration Orchestra Website Review: 2004 through 2006 Report…

Updated to include the 2006 review results, the new edition is 14 pages longer than its predecessor. Otherwise, it’s still spiral bound for convenience and everything from in-depth descriptions of the evaluation criteria and grading formula as well as detailed grades for all 24 subcategories for every orchestra reviewed. This report will serve as an invaluable resource for any budget size orchestra looking to design a website from scratch or simply wanting to tighten up what they already have.

Better yet, there’s no price increase over last year: order your copy today.


About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
