I am a bid writing mad man this week so today’s post is some link love for some articles that have caught my attention over the past few weeks and are worth a read.
- Stuff To Ponder: Is Too Much Money Being Left On The Table? Joe Patti examines dynamic pricing via some recent resources and a big fail at JCPenney.
- Project Management In The Cloud Ceci Dadisman examines a handful of project management resources to make life easier for nonprofit performing arts groups. She shares some love for two providers I use: Basecamp (a provider we examined back in February) and DropBox.
- Who The Hell Are You Calling Old?! Holly Mulcahy wonders if much of the angst endured by arts organizations isn’t self inflicted. So how about launching a multi-gen orchestra date night? Because it will make nanna happy, that’s why!
- Before China’s Transition, a Wave of Nationalism I can see where the title of Andrew Jacob’s New York Times article isn’t a pull for the orchestra field but scroll down to the bit about the Philadelphia Orchestra being “dismayed to find many of its Chinese corporate sponsors inexplicably backing out at the last minute” vis-a-vis its China residency.
- Michael Kaiser And The Cardinal Sin Of Consultancy Amy Wratchford says what everyone else seems to be thinking about the Huffington Post blog from Michael Kaiser where he relayed sensitive client details about a current consulting project.
- Ready to work with someone who cares? This isn’t really a post so much as a plug to point out that there have been a number of new job openings posted at Adaptistration Jobs since last week; five full time and two part time.
