Seems the corporate world has finally recognized the theatre as a model. This little snip from a very long (and tedious) post about corporate management from Dave Snoden's June 8 blog. The Cognitive Edge:
Live theatre is the best example of simulation in all its forms - pre-production, production and post production. Theatre creates a world in which all stakeholders attempt to make sense out of a world they have created. And usually it is made through text, dialogues and conversations around meaning - the meaning of the text, design, sound, light etc - the aesthetics of the simulation. A very specific, fragile yet tangible and highly governed world is created and then it makes sense for a moment - only a moment though - to the actors and the audience watching this creation unfold..
Interesting to see the corporate take on what we do, don't you think?
