The use of the arts as intervention tools in business has been accompanied by the rise of organisational aesthetics as a field of scholarly inquiry within business schools. This book contributes to both areas by examining the ways in which the aesthetics of music informs organisational development. In particular the study of a symphony orchestra during a time when it changed its structure from a cooperative to corporate governance regime presents an intriguing model for other organisations managing structural change. The method outlined in this book enables those seeking to understand complex organisations a means of making sense of the diverse and often competing interests of various stakeholder groups.
