Robert Bruner, dean of the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia, has an excellent piece in today's Washington Post Business Section relating Edward Hopper's Art to entrepreneurs. From the article:
Artists in business are visionaries, inventors, entrepreneurs, and general managers, people who create something larger out of the assembly of resources, 2+2=5. They are quick learners; they recognize problems and opportunities ahead of the crowd; they shape large visions and enlist others in support; they communicate well and are socially-aware (in the “macro” sense of understanding big issues in the world and in the “micro” sense of reading a room full of people to understand their issues); they serve with integrity; and leaders have a bias for action.I have written on the same exact subject. My article "Management and Art" is here.
