Abstract

Balboa Park Online Collaborative is a collaborative technology project involving 17 museums, performing arts venues, gardens, and the San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park, San Diego. This paper will present the challenges we faced in managing the creation and execution of a common strategy and framework during our first year. We will share the successes and lessons learned as well as the compromises required to move the institutions of Balboa Park forward and manage the project effectively.
