  • 15. Process for adoption There isn’t one process for adopting SPECTRUM in a new region, but most museums go through a process something like this…! “I’ve never heard of SPECTRUM” “I’ve heard of SPECTRUM, but I’m not sure I like it” “It’s ok, but I don’t have time for anything new right now” “I’ll give it a go, but only the one procedure…” “Actually, we’re doing most of this already” “SPECTRUM is great”
