Museums throughout the world are under increasing pressure, in the wake of the 2008/2009 recession and the many pressing social and environmental issues that are assuming priority. The major focus of concern in the global museum community is the sustainability of museums in light of these pressures, not to mention falling attendance and the challenges of the digital world. Effective management is the key to organizational effectiveness, and museums are in need of the theory and methods of creative management to assist them in their quest for sustainability. Museums and the Paradox of Changeis a detailed account of how a major Canadian museum suffered a 40% loss in its operating budget and went on to become the most financially self-sufficient of the ten largest museums in Canada. Museums and the Paradox of Changeprovides the most detailed case study of its kind and is indispensible for students and practitioners alike. Providing pragmatic solutions grounded in a theoretical context, Janes highlights important issues in the management of museums that cannot be ignored.
