Management Consulting for the Cultural Sector

METRUM offers strategic advice for leaders of cultural, educational and other non-profit organisations as well as for the political institutions supporting and financing such organisations. Thanks to 25 years of experience and over 300 successfully completed projects in Germany, Switzerland and Austria METRUM is one of the industry leaders in this sector.

Our contribution to culture and education

We believe that art, culture and education should maintain and increase the positive influence they have on all of society. We are convinced that modern strategic and economic ways of thinking play a crucial role towards attaining this goal. By employing these methods in the service of our clients, we strive to make a lasting, positive contribution to the future of art, culture and education.

In this dynamically changing world, the stakes are high for our cultural institutions. They need people with attitude who want to shape and take responsibility, because the challenges are getting bigger and more complex.


Our motivation is to find the right talent for our European clients in the arts, culture, and education. In doing so, we focus exclusively on management positions and work cross-regionally and internationally in every respect – because art and culture know no borders.

Our clients are orchestras, museums, theatres, concert halls, festivals, universities, libraries and research institutes. For them, we identify the really relevant aspects of any situation, based on intensive dialogue, on our experiences with similar situations and on quantitative and qualitative data analysis. 

We do not only develop strategies but we also work with our clients to put them into action. Therefore, we know both the abstract heights of political thinking about culture and the nuts and bolts of managing a cultural institution.
