The Plan is the Plan

I realize we hammer on this as a post topic, but only because it's so.... essential.
Earlier this week, I was in a meeting where we were deciding on some moves for a project in it's middles stages and we were at a crossroads. These moves will some day have enormous visitor experience, staff, environmental, and of course, budgetary implications. In order to move ourselves forward, we came back to our strategic plan.
Which is why it's so important to have a strong-yet-flexible plan, strategy, or vision. With museum exhibits involving multiple parts and participants, and museum projects mushrooming out in complexity, there is no better guiding light.
Just a gentle reminder.
