Abstract and Keywords

Improvisation is informing new models for strategy and organization design and determining how improvisation can create more productive interactions between individuals in an organization. Management research offers something to the study of improvisation in the form of evidence that groups that combine access to diverse ideas with internal cohesion are more creative and better able to develop those ideas into effective products and performances. One example of a management practice informed by improvisation is the concept of strategic intuition, which explains how the combination of lessons from history and presence of mind can produce new ideas.

Keywords: organization, strategy, creativity, networks, intuition, negotiation, management, business
