Introducing Barker Langham Analytics: a no-cost business planning tool for the cultural sector

As we think about the future and the post-pandemic landscape, many cultural organisations are considering new models, and creating and testing new business plans and strategies.

A traditional static business plan won’t necessarily represent the most innovative or sustainable solution in this new context – the real value lies in interactive, dynamic financial planning, rapidly exploring scenarios and enabling smart decision-making.

This is why we have developed Barker Langham Analytics, an easy-to-use, cloud-based financial planning tool designed specifically for the cultural sector.

The tool enables users to present instantaneous, highly visual financial plans, conduct scenario analysis by flexing key assumptions and generate flexible financial forecasts.

We offer Barker Langham Analytics to you free of charge – as our contribution to the renewal and re-imagining of business models for the sector.
