Following workshops with museums and archives, the ALMA-UK Economic Impact Tookit has ben updated. The easy-to-use toolkit was further developed, under the guidance of ALMA-UK, by Wavehill Consultancy. It is based on an extensive exercise to identify the most useful usable methodology for archives and museums, which share a similar economic perspective in that they attract a significant number of non-local customers.
The updated toolkit is is now available on the ALMA-UK web site.
The Economic Impact Toolkit’s publication is of particular importance during these difficult financial times as it will enable museums and archives to demonstrate to funders, and the wider community, the positive impact that their services have on their local and regional economies.

It is predominantly aimed at museums and local authorities but the content is relevant and useful for a wide range of organisations. Some of the practical tools we have available are:
The Choices for Change toolkit will help you identify governance models and examine which service delivery options are best for your business. This is probably most useful for local authorities.

The Economic Impact toolkit - this important, new, easy to use tool will allow you to measure the economic impact of your museum. To access the toolkit go to the Economic Impact Resources page.
