Workshop Description: This session is designed to share the results of my recently completed doctoral dissertation on the impact of theatrical improvisation on organizational effectiveness. The use of an experiential, arts-based curriculum that is centered around theatrical improvisation, when utilized for corporate employee training and development purposes, has the potential to have a transformational effect on individuals and organizations if planned and implemented in a thoughtful and purposeful manner. This interpretive case study explored the use of an improv-based training program for employee development purposes in order to understand the experiences of the study’s participants relative to the perceived impact and effectiveness of this training methodology, at both the individual and group levels.
