The Jazz analogy is a great one. Many organizations have become hyper-organized. Process has replaced progress. Structures have become too rigid and the organization is slow to react to the changes in the business. We need to encourage innovation, not just talk about it. As in Jazz, we need the ability to innovate and deviate from the norm. This leads to a more dynamic organization which is an integral part of the business and keeps ahead of the competition. Those that can work in this type of environment will enhance the organization.
