The Performance Project

The Performance Project | Performance Project | Scoop.it

The Performance Project” is focused on lessons for leadership and management from live performing arts, music, theatre, and dance, and from sports.

James Schreier's insight:

The following link is to a song, "Why" from "Tick, Tick, Boom!"  Thanks to Michael Ingersoll, (Under the Streetlamp, Jersey Boys) for giving me:  "Over and over and over til we got it right."  It's clearly the theme song for this topic and The Performance  Project.  Message to leaders and managers:  PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!


Why -- from Tick, Tick, Boom

What If You Ran Your Business Like Westworld? 

What If You Ran Your Business Like Westworld?  | Performance Project | Scoop.it
One of the things I’ve most enjoyed while watching this first season of Westworld is trying to figure out which tech CEO Ford is most like.
