The problem with violin competitions
A panel of experts judges major violin competitions. The problem is, music-making is an art, not a science. So, unlike sports, there isn’t a clear winner.
Some experts may prefer a passionate approach, while others love more direct music-making.
Neither is wrong. Personal tastes matter.
The problem is, outliers often get penalized. Out of the top tier of violinists, the one that offends the least comes out on top.
Similar problems happen when debating which innovative idea to embrace. Again, creating group consensus is crucial. So is recognizing the dangers of groupthink.
How do you ensure your team avoids embracing the least offensive idea versus the most effective ones?
Thanks for caring!
