Improvisation: Creativity in the Moment
by Paul Grabowsky
Effective improvisation requires a flexibility of response, based on knowledge of what belongs where, and how best and most creatively to make decisions in the moment.
Written from the viewpoint of a musician embedded partly in the corporate world, the message espouses the need for organisations to unleash the power of creativity within them to bring improvisation and teamwork back to the fore.
