Thriving in Displacement: Reflections on Organizational Resilience
Andrew Recinos

How can we prepare for major organizational change – planned and unplanned – by observing organizations that have responded to and successfully navigated major challenges? In his role as President of the Non-Profit Tessitura Network, Andrew Recinos travels the globe visiting the leaders of countless cultural organizations using Tessitura Cultural Enterprise Software. From this unique vantage point, he has observed some striking examples of organizations that were temporarily displaced, either by design or by disaster. In this session, Andrew will share several recent stories, from both the museum and performing arts worlds, as a way to illustrate several important lessons he has learned working with a variety of organizations. Andrew’s talk will be followed by a discussion period, allowing for further exploration of the case studies he shares and the themes he raises.  Andrew’s talk will include case studies from SFMOMA, The Alliance Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company and the Nashville Symphony.
