In the European Capital of Culture RUHR.2010, the book’s authors go over the entire process, ranging from organising the company’s bearer to its liquidation. As moderator of the “Essen für das Ruhrgebiet” application and as the General Manager of RUHR.2010 GmbH, Oliver Scheytt was responsible for preparing and realizing the European Capital of Culture through all its phases. From the very beginning onwards, Eckart Achauer, as a consultant, has constantly supported the organisation during its setting-up as well as in all fields of its project and process management.
The respective coauthors are named in their respective chapters. What has been important for the authors was not simply to describe the setting-up of an organisation or the structure of a cultural undertaking (see chapter C), but to also reflect on the various processes that are of considerable significance for a cultural undertaking’s programme and project management (compare chapters B and D). A Capital of Culture’s organisation, like any other cultural undertaking, has many interfaces to cultural players, agencies, partner organisations and consultants. Accordingly, the book explains in detail how to organize a transfer of know-how, how to recruit qualified personnel and how to accurately and efficiently assign an agency (chapter E). Finally, the “Cultural Governance” has a substantial function within decision-making and network management (chapter F).
