Living reference work entry


Artistic interventions have entered the portfolio of approaches to develop people and organizations, thereby expanding theories of organizational learning and culture with aesthetic dimensions. Research shows that organizations of all sizes and types have worked with many forms of art to stimulate new ways of thinking and to support experimentation with new processes, products and services. Studies have documented numerous kinds of possible benefits. They emphasize that the generation of organizational-level value depends on individuals experiencing value-added in the interspace during the artistic intervention and on management support for following up on ideas and initiatives afterwards.
