Strategy & Planning

A well thought out strategic plan lays the foundation for growing your arts organisation, no matter what its size, scale or sector.

Judith Bowtell has been helping arts organisations develop robust strategic and business plans for more than 20 years, and in doing so has facilitated the development of new programs, increased revenues and higher profiles for many organisations.

Albany Lane can work in partnership with you at any stage of your strategic development: from blue sky brainstorming to forming and executing new business strategies. We don’t tell you what to do, but listen to all the information and ask the hard questions, cutting through the noise and vested interests so you can make effective decisions.

We can facilitate your planning sessions and consultations. We will even draft and formulate the documents for you, bringing together all the data and points of view so you can clearly see what needs to be done.

Our strategic support can be used in many circumstances facing organisations such as:

  • Setting a new strategic vision and direction, including reviewing existing plans
  • Evaluating and reviewing new business opportunities
  • Restructuring to meet changed organisational needs
  • Identifying potential road blocks to achieving your goals, and finding creative solutions to enable you over come them.
