I had a wonderful time working with the MBA students from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Bolz Center for Arts Administration program. Having the future managers assume the role of orchestra musicians in a mock collective bargaining agreement negotiation produced some fascinating results…
As for now, I have to run out the door to attend some after-action meetings with some of the students so we can dialog about what happened yesterday and more. Once those sessions are complete and I return to Chicago, I’ll write more about what happened and some of surprises which popped up during these sessions.
But before I run, I have to say that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed spending time in Madison with the students and finally having the opportunity to meet my long time Arts Journal blogging neighbor, Andrew Taylor face-to-face. Andrew’s hospitality and that of the UM-Madison’s Fluno Center For Executive Education were all top notch.

It’s been fun to have you here, in person! You’re sitting only 10 feet away from me at the moment, but I still felt compelled to thank you in the virtual world.
You have to love the internet…
Hey Drew, I look forward to hearing more about the mock collective bargaining you participated in at the Bolz Center. We at the College-Conservatory of Music Arts Admin program (http://www.artsadminmba.com) will be tackling our collective bargaining later this quarter.
