Between Museum and Health Care: An Example of the Successful Creation, Implementation, and Diffusion of Organizational Innovations

Par Bertrand Pauget, Jean-Michel Tobelem

This paper presents how a museum can create, implement and disseminate a series of organizational innovations. We attempt to describe these phenomena in terms of the social structure. We believe that coherence with the social structure is one of the keys to implementing and disseminating organizational innovation. We emphasize the role of relations and transformational leadership. Our case study is the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. This museum has proposed a rapprochement with the health sector to the point of offering dedicated spaces for people who are suffering from various pathologies. The results show a connection between wellbeing promoted by the museum and health carried out by health professionals.
