The Updates Just Keep On Coming

Adaptistration isn’t the only blog enjoying a sizeable infrastructure update; over the weekend, I rolled out a similar platform update for plus you’ll find the first two offerings in the new downloadable 990 series at the Adaptistration Store.

I published an article at ArtsHacker that provides a detailed overview of the improvements and enhancements. One item I’m anxious to keep an eye on is the the new related posts function. It’s the same one I installed here, which learns based on user behavior.

It’s Time For Infrastructure Updates

As promised in last week’s preview post, you can now find the new downloadable Orchestra 990 offerings at the Adaptistration Store. These cover the two most recent seasons of complete information available while additional seasons, all the way back to the 1999-2000 season,  will be rolled out on a regular basis. You can pick up these two on sale through the end of the month, no need for coupon codes etc. the sale price is automatically applied.

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.
