"The quality of instruction at the School's recent Executive Leadership Institute for Museums was superb. The Strategic Triangle model is proving extremely useful to board and staff as we begin work on crafting our next strategic plan. I'm confident its use will strengthen Levine Museum of the New South's long term capacity to serve our community. On a personal level, the lessons learned at the session are helping me think more strategically and lead more effectively. All in all, it was one of the most beneficial nonprofit management courses I've ever attended."
