Free Powerpoint Templates Page 6 Museum Management The American Association of Museums (AAM): a series of standards and best practices that help guide the management of museums. Many small, local museums lack this guidance since accreditation with AAM requires a museum to operate on an annual budget of at least $25,000. “Administration of the organization requires skill in conflict management, interpersonal relations, budget management and monitoring, and staff supervision and evaluation. Managers must also set legal and ethical standards and maintain involvement in the museum profession,” museum professionals Hugh H. Genoways and Lynne M. Ireland.

Free Powerpoint Templates Page 20 The Project Management Office manages –the scope, –schedule, and –budget for exhibitions and exhibition- related projects.
Free Powerpoint Templates Page 22 Project Management the IMA Athena, a Project Management System created by the IMA back in late 2007.
Free Powerpoint Templates Page 23 A view of a user dashboard Each user has a customizable dashboard with a personalized view into their projects and activity – an average user with 27 projects. Some users have more than 100! The project order is customizable so you have quick access to your most frequent projects.
Free Powerpoint Templates Page 24 A peek inside a project Each project can enable and disable features such as file sharing, an image gallery, tasks, etc. You can also see recent activity on just the project you are viewing.
Free Powerpoint Templates Page 25 Engaging users in the system and promoting fast adoption A built in gaming module. Users earn a small amount of points for every action they perform in Athena. As users earn more points they unlock new features. The features include themes and helpful widgets for their dashboard (e.g. a todo list). Additionally, users are assigned a certain rank based on their points. Users must work hard to be promoted from “Newbie” to “Tom Brady” to “Intern” and so on.
Free Powerpoint Templates Page 26 A ranking dashboard widget Additional motivation is given by a ranking dashboard widget. Users can see other users right around them and track how to they move relative to others.
Free Powerpoint Templates Page 27 Statistics monitoring Any staff member can invite any address to a project. That external user gets their own dashboard and rank. In just 18 months over 11,000 files weighing in at 22GB of office documents have been accumulated. All these documents are indexed and their contents are searchable, so they are actually very easy to locate.
Free Powerpoint Templates Page 28 Transparency in Museum Project Projectmates Construction Management Software by Systemates, Dallas, Texas. The Web-based project-management software is designed to simplify processes specific to construction, including task and change management in real time, invoicing, and progress reports, among others. By adopting a tool capable of automating manual processes such as budget tracking, the team hopes to reduce its risk of error. Plus, by adding the ability to communicate among team members, the project will benefit from the increased transparency in its workflow. Project-management software solutions keep the data flowing and all invested parties informed. Increased collaboration, access, and control can help build a good foundation on projects like Kentucky’s Speed Art Museum.
