Today’s startup showcase brings a unique consulting firm that provides tailored solutions to cultural organizations to improve their operations and enhance their visitors’ experiences. Operationally brings a deep understanding of the critical role of operations in making cultural organizations successful. In this showcase, we will explore the background, services, and impact of Operationally.
Many cultural organizations are facing challenges that are not related to their mission or programming but rather to their operations. These challenges often stem from a lack of financial resources, processes, technologies, and infrastructure that hinder the effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability of their operations. This situation can lead to lower visitor satisfaction, lower staff morale, and lower revenue. To address this issue, Emily Croll, a seasoned museum executive and consultant, founded Operationally in 2018 in Chicago.
