Abstract: This thesis explores the common management strategies used when integrating technology into public programming at museums. The findings show the most important strategies: how initial goals of the program relate to the museum’s mission, user involvement in the initial design, program evaluation methods, staff roles in the initial design, the day-to-day management of the program, and the attitude of leadership. This study shows the most important strategies needed for successful integration of technology, and how they can be guided by the opinions of experts. The findings demonstrate that successful programs can be created with limited resources and different levels of technology capacity. In order to find these similar strategies, six programs that were previous winners of a MUSE Award from the American Association of Museums were studied. Their program managers were interviewed and findings were then synthesized to understand common strategies. Experts in each section were consulted to give insight into the meaning of the results.
