It's the Board, Stupid

'Boards are less a problem than a symptom of a larger, systemic issue: a pervasive loss of creativity in large performing arts institutions.'

'[The general director of San Francisco Opera described] a fundraising trip he had made to a Silicon Valley company, where, he said (and I paraphrase), the employees used skateboards, wrote with markers on the windows, roamed around an open-floor plan and encouraged offbeat ideas. Back in his own office, Shivlock said, he found himself thinking, “I wish I worked for a creative company” — and then recoiled in horror at the implications of the words.'
