Anyone read "Artful Making: What Managers Need to Know About How Artists
Artful Making offers the first proven, research-based framework for
engineering ingenuity and innovation. This book is the result of a
multi-year collaboration between Harvard Business School professor Robert
Austin and leading theatre director and playwright Lee Devin. Together, they
demonstrate striking structural similarities between theatre artistry and
production and today's business projects--and show how collaborative artists
have mastered the art of delivering innovation "on cue," on immovable
deadlines and budgets. These methods are neither mysterious nor flaky: they
are rigorous, precise, and--with this book's help--absolutely learnable and
reproducible. They rely on cheap and rapid iteration rather than on
intensive up-front planning, and with the help of today's enabling
technologies, they can be applied in virtually any environment with
knowledge-based outputs. Moreover, they provide an overarching framework for
leveraging the full benefits of today's leading techniques for promoting
flexibility and innovation, from agile development to real options.
