Interim Management Museum de Fundatie
Client: Stichting Hannema-de Stuers Fundatie
Details: The assignment was to purge the museum’s considerable financial deficits, to conduct a critical analysis of its operations and to make improvements. In addition, the museum needed to be advised on the adaptation of the managerial structure and the profile of a new Director. Museum de Fundatie has two wonderful locations at its disposal: Het Nijenhuis Castle in Heino and the Palace on Blijmarkt in Zwolle.
Result: A plan was drawn up for the 2007-2010 period: ‘Gouden Kansen’ (‘Golden Opportunities’). This plan served as the basis for adapting the museum’s operational management and purging its debts. Arrears were made good in the areas of staffing, finances and accommodation. The Province of Overijssel and the Municipality of Zwolle made one-time contributions on the basis of the plan. In addition, the museum’s operating grant was raised for a period of three years. As of 1 February 2007, the responsibilities were transferred to the new Director Ralph Keuning.
