Brings together recent research in this rapidly changing field, blending contributions of academic researchers with museum managers. Papers by practitioners take real-life situations as their starting point and draw upon wider management theory as appropriate. Topics include creative management in museums, visionary leadership, the challenge of managing retired volunteers in small museums, and the lack of female museum directors. Other subjects are organizational cultures in museums and art galleries, and TQM in museums. Moore is director of the Preston Football Museums, and has published widely in the fields of labor history and museum studies.
