Questions. We all have questions that need answering:
And ultimately the biggest ones of all:
Museums desperately need high-quality research that explores their role in our society. At Wilkening Consulting, my research focus is on all of these questions. From the big, hairy questions that we, as a field, wrestle with to the questions that individual museums face in their own, unique, situation.
But research in and of itself cannot live in a vacuum. It needs context. Yet in this Information Age, we are overwhelmed with content clutter: all the research, trends, reports, blogs, data, and articles that we feel we must review to provide that context, but instead builds up in our inboxes and in piles in our offices.
This is where Knowledge Curation™ comes in. Through my constant assessment of a wide variety of external source, I know what is out there. And when I get to know an individual museum well, I can sort through the external data and research to pull out what matters most for them, and their situation.
High-quality research. Knowledge Curation™. Pulled together to help museums, together and individually, thrive in the future.
