Luc Burgelman: How Jazz Music Prepared Me for Life as a CEO

Luc BurgelmanLast week, I found myself in an Italian restaurant playing improvised jazz music with a few other musicians. Despite what it might sound like, I’m not a full-time musician. I’m actually CEO of a big data startup, a far cry from my musical moonlighting gig.

But as I played, I couldn’t help but connect the dots between the two roles.

We think of executives as rigid, driven, and all business, while musicians appear to be casual and more free spirited.
