PUBLICATION DATE: October 21, 2010 PRODUCT #: ES1091-PDF-ENG
The four-component case study (text cases A, B, C, and video case D) demonstrate essential concepts and lessons about the top adaptive change in the circumstance of some extra-musical initiatives of Berlin-based and world-renowned conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim.
The case represent the challenges related to opposition to adaptive change, comprehension of stakeholders, management of battles, and the emotional challenges of top unpopular, although significant, change attempts under the conditions of pressure from various affected parties, who knowingly or unconsciously try to redirect the change-oriented leader from pushing forward. The case functions as productive ground for exploration of the theory of adaptive change (as put forward by Heifetz and Linsky), discussion of the risks of top, and emotional challenges of heading.
