Case Study Assignment2Michael WilliamsBUAD-631- Management and Organizational Theory10/09/2012Rotating LeadersThe subject of rotating leaders alone before even reading about it in the text immediately caught my attention. For reasons I intend to explain. The main reason is this is something I’m very familiar with because I have experienced it several times on my job, rotating from one position to the next. That is what made this reading particularly interesting to me. Then there is “The Orpheus Process as Business Model” which examined a management model, pioneered by New York’s critically acclaimed Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Orpheus Chamber Orchestra holds tremendous potential for corporate environments, as well as other nonprofit groups. From the reading I gathered that an increasing number of artists and arts organizations are being engaged by businesses to provide a wide range of services, from high level executive education and leadership development. This of which is used for more basic HR training such as diversity awareness and entertainment oriented roles and also revitalizing corporate presentations.Orpheus, under its then Executive Director Harvey Seifter, has become a model in this arena. For thirty years or more, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has succeeded by dispensing with the traditional model of ensemble players led by a conductor. Instead, as described by Seifter, leadership is shared as orchestra members collaborate on matters of repertoire, interpretation, rehearsal, and personnel, ensuring that each player has a stake in artistic decisions.
