Knowledge Is Power

One of the biggest requests during the Orchestra Compensation Reports is from readers who are interested in seeing more than a single season worth of data so as to build a more comprehensive frame of reference. I couldn’t agree more and that content is available exclusively via subscription at Adaptistration Premium. To that end, I’m happy to report that all of the 2011 content has been uploaded, that means you have access to nine years of compensation material…

That makes Adaptistration Premium the only resource of its kind and without a doubt, seeing that much compensation data in one place is the only way to adequately grasp the impact of current and historic trends for the entire field. The data is broken down by four stakeholder groups and assembled into three categories:

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.
