Services for Organizations


The DeVos Institute of Arts Management has served more than 1,000 organizations from over 80 countries. While environments, objectives, and disciplines vary, each Institute client shares the desire to create, market, and sustain exemplary cultural programs.

The Institute's customized consultancies are designed for organizations at all stages in the life cycle, including:

  • Advanced-capacity institutions seeking a strategic “refresh” or visioning process to propel the organization to the next level of excellence
  • Those that know that “something’s not quite right” and that recalibration in several key areas is likely necessary
  • Those requiring immediate, comprehensive evaluation and an intensive level of support
  • New and emerging organizations seeking a planned, steady approach to building a strong foundation and maximizing opportunity
  • Those undergoing a leadership succession at the executive, programmatic, or board levels that can benefit from short-term assistance in one or more key areas.

Organizational Audits

The Institute's Organizational Audit results in a renewed focus on the most salient issues facing a client, as well as a series of short-term recommendations to stabilize or strengthen an organization.
