Planned Improvements

Adaptistration People 031Thanks to a steady stream of growth over the past year among my Venture Platform users, I recently completed a server upgrade. As a result, that meant everything here at Adaptistration migrated as well and in the wake of that migration, I started building out the blog’s next phase.

  • A Branded Jobs Board: Adaptistration Jobs has experienced a solid growth rate over the past four years and as part of this development phase it will become its own branded arts admin jobs board destination. Don’t worry, it will remain completely free to use for both employers and job seekers. The existing job listing upgrades will remain as well but in addition to the branded re-launch will come a round of admin and employer job posting automation. The site is already the most user-friendly arts admin jobs board around and this next step will raise that bar even higher.
  • Updated Blog Framework: This will be a mostly under the hood style improvements but you’ll notice more than a few layout and user interface enhancements especially for readers.
  • Opening Up My Treasure Chest Of Research Resources: this one’s a surprise.
  • Updated Themes For The Cartoon And TAFTO Resource Site: the primary goal here is to provide an even faster user experience, especially at the cartoon site because snappier load times means more binge endorphins.

Optimally, this will all be completed and rolled out on or around September 1, 2017 so if you have any ideas, now is the time speak up.

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.
