Two days before departure: homework

Two days before departure, I am reading my homework for the Museum Leadership Institute at the Getty. One of the first exercises on the schedule asks us to read a case study focussing on the organizational challenges of a legal aid society in the U.S.

Interesting exercise in that we need to look at a very complex situation with multiple stakeholders where the organization may need to evaluate the nature of its work, the impact of its work on the community (or communities) it serves and to possibly rethink some of the basic premises of its work.

It's interesting to think about how the different challenges faced by this organization could apply to some of our challenges at the WAG.
