No Place Like Home: The Industry at a Crossroads


SKU: EastmanCaseStudies-TheIndustry-RC15900 Categories: , Tags: ,


This case study details the early success of the Los Angeles-based experimental opera company known as The Industry. While unfolding an established three-year strategic plan to guide the enterprise, prospects materialize for a residency at a new museum in Los Angeles. Amid this scenario, questions at the board level are raised about how an organization that has grown up without a home base for productions should react to the chance to forge a relationship with an institution that could bolster—or hinder—its success.
