“When you're looking at that kind of shrinking market share, or you know, creating something really big, it's no longer about trying to dodge the bullet, you know, it's about seeing the bullet and being able to work away, to send that bullet back.” - Jennifer Wilde
“Oftentimes, choreographers don't realize there is a job for what they do. And as a result, they end up squishing themselves into project manager roles, or business analyst roles for other technology jobs that offer them a bit of opportunity to stretch their creative muscle, but don't really take advantage of their, you know, natural talent for seeing the big picture for imagining entirely new system.” - Jennifer Wilde
“You realize that, in those circumstances where the entire world around you is being disrupted, or there's an unsolved problem that you haven't been successful with before, simply doing more of those little changes is not going to be enough. And as a result, the organizational practice changes that you need to embrace are not simply a case of doing the same kinds of things, but a little bit bigger or a little bit faster, or a little bit more agile, it's really a new definition of agile.” - Dan McClure
“Choreographers are chased out of traditional organizations. So part of the goal here is to rather than chasing them away, identifying them, bringing them in and embracing them as part of the creative process.” - Dan McClure
