Transformation of the cultural sector

Why are strategic planning and management key to the development of cultural institutions?

Transformation of the cultural sector


  • Impact of the economic downturn – With the economic crisis, governments and sponsors have cut grants to cultural institutions, forcing them to find new sources of income
  • Rise of business philosophy – The increasing competition among cultural institutions, and from other leisure activities, has created a need for the cultural sector to be more aligned with for-profit organisations
  • Development of creative cities and cultural hubs – Local and national authorities are willing to develop creative activities that have spill over positive effects on the economy
  • A trend toward privatisation – The last decades have seen the creation among cultural institutions of mixed forms of governance incorporating both public and private governing authorities. At the same time, a large number of private museums have opened their doors

Deloitte solutions

We offer stakeholders of the cultural sector a fresh and independent view for the development and the day-to-day management of cultural facilities and projects.

Why should you consider our cultural development planning and management services?

  • Because your institution’s environment has changed and you need advice to adapt to a new market
  • Because your institution lacks – perhaps temporarily – the skills and experience it needs
  • Because your institution’s governing body wants to make major changes, and wants independent support in doing so
  • Because a stakeholder wants an objective assessment before giving or continuing support
  • Because your organisation is considering moving into the museum sector and needs strategic advice
