ORPHEUS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA TO HOLD PM TEACHING CASE

Orpheus, the only chamber orchestra in the world that consistently rehearses, performs, and records without a conductor, has garnered attention from the corporate sector for its unique approaches to creativity, innovation, and self-management.

For example, Orpheus had showcased its innovative approach to leadership for a group of Haas MBA students at the International House auditorium. Morgan Stanley has sponsored the event at Haas. The firm also sponsored an Orpheus residency at Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo.

Central to the distinctive personality of Orpheus is its unusual process of sharing and rotating leadership roles.

The "Orpheus Process" is built on individual responsibility, shared leadership, and workplace democracy.

The process has enabled the orchestra to unleash the talent, vision, creativity, and leadership potential of each member of the group.

For every work, an elected committee of musicians selects a concertmaster and each instrumental section chooses a representative.

These chosen representatives (the "core group") are responsible for forming the initial concept of the piece and developing an overall interpretive approach to the music before the entire orchestra comes together to rehearse.

The core also structures the rehearsal process for the entire orchestra, which provides clear leadership while insuring that every member has a real stake in the artistic outcome of every piece performed by the orchestra.

The results of the process have produced 28 years of sustained excellence at the highest level of international accomplishment.

The main focus of the residency at Haas it was to demonstrate the Orpheus Process in action, as the orchestra rehearses the first movement of Haydn's Symphony No. 63 in C Major in "real time," showing by example their work process from core preparations to final product.

The applications of the Orpheus Process to the business world or the communities of open source projects, can be framed in the introduction of a Xoops Management thread and reinforced through a question-and-answer and a discussion period with the xoopsers and auto-proclaimed “Leaders”.

I think he's suggesting that xoops.org form an orchestra.

I used to play trombone in a school band, but that was about 35 years ago.

And I don't know how we'd manage reheasals, with the members scattered all over the world.

No one is sorry!

We all have our own limits and limitations!

@Core Team
each post you show your arrogance and ignorance!

... Post Tenebras Lux...

We need developers but unfortunately their disagreements affect the all XOOPS communities. They should not use their dev “power” to control and influence the way the project is going…

If they want the best for Xoops, and I’m sure is the case, they still have to be honest and fair. And this is available for all developers with their own branch…

They need to considerer themselves, like we do, as developers, not project managers, nor designers and these are why they should keep doing their job and leave the others doing theirs. Why not to stop posting so much and concentrate in a more active development?

Except if you believe that’s possible to make a carrier like, you know, the guy that joins as a cleaner and ends up as executive director of that multinational corp!?

We experienced that recently, on Mambo Thread, designers are as important as developers. Designers enable developers work to be sellable.

As my goodfriend Jason says when suggest and initiate XOOPS Theme Forge (stand by..) Designers enable developer's work to be sellable and that’s what we can call interdependency. When working together we get:

Synergy or synergism, most often refers to the phenomenon of two or more discrete influences or agents acting in common to create an effect which is greater than the sum of the effects each is able to create independently.

At least they both have one thing in common, they depend on users! And at last, they all, make the community.

I believe that the developers team will wisely accept to be guided on the same level as the others teams. This structure will be a benefit to the all Xoopsers and their projects.

I beg you (xoopsers and young leader team) to read carefully and think about the meaning of the example above !

We shouldn't? Then who should? "The community", who want everything and anything and preferably yesterday and with many features and with few features and...?

Look, I don't know why you are so angry with everyone trying to give you a tool you can use. I don't understand why you continue to throw philosophy around, neglecting what we are doing and continuing to whip up a sentiment that everything is bad. Without suggesting any tangible remedies, mind you.

Shouldn't we all? I think I'll start now - how about you?

True wisdom:
1. Always forgive your enemies -- Nothing annoys them so much..
2. War does not determine who is right, but who is left



I don't like the way you (&Herko&Skalpa) put your hands over this project! And the way you manage it (not in the open source community spirit).

You expelled the founder!?

Why didn't you start your own project as some of us are doing!



"Open Source" - Try a new management !

P.S. Hey kid.. make your own business but remember to still honest.. behind the screen you still fragile like life humain being ! As everybody can see from the last two months you listen to community and it seems to work better !
