  2. Museum Stratgeic Planning: Comprehensive plan that broadly delineates where the institution is going and provides sufficient detail to guide implementation. Sets priorities and guides important decisions that are oriented towards the future. Some museums split this into two parts:
    1. Multi-year plan: Big-picture plan that sets strategies, goals, and priorities. Sometimes referred to as a strategic or long-range plan.
    2. Operational plan: Plan that provides the details needed to implement the decisions in the stra- tegic or long-range plan. Usually focuses on a short period of time and is typically geared to the museum’s budget year. Sometimes referred to as an implementation plan. For more information see the AAM Standards regarding an institutional plan.
  3. Museum Community Assessment: Each museum self-identifies the community or communities it serves. These may be geographically defined, may be communities of common interests, or may be communities formed around identities or a combination of these types. Community engagement: Engaging with and collaborating with diverse groups to jointly meet needs articulated by the community and taking actions that truly benefit the community.
