The Streamlined And Refined Adaptistration Premium

Becoming an insider just became twice as awesome. Adaptistration Premium, the online resource center for the Orchestra Compensation Reports and Orchestra Website Reviews material that contains exclusive data not available in the annual posts, recently went through an update that not only improves user experience, but brings along a price break.

New Subscription Model

Previously, you could purchase a separate subscription to the Compensation Reports and Website Reviews or both for a discount. But as a result of the changes to the compensation report data vis-a-vis removing the base musician compensation figures (details) it made more sense to offer a single subscription level that provides complete access to the entire site; meaning, you now get twice as much data for the same annual subscription fee.

Improved User Experience

The compensation reports have been updated to include the 2012 data (which covers the 2009/10 season) which brings the number of years in the compensation history reports up to eleven (1999/2000 through 2009/10).

Moreover, each stakeholder’s respective reports are now available on a single page so no more waiting for page reloads; meaning you can flip between the Comparative Overview, Compensation History Top 10 Earners, and Average Changes all from the same page.

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.
