Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The article deals with learning in artistic organizations. The focus is centered on how organizations learn through interpretation and talks about action, in order to provide a basis for development. In artistic organizations the creative process as well as the inal art product is carrying meaning and has its own unique character and importance. To transfer learning from one project to another can be complex, because it is an open question what experience, it makes sense to use from project to project. The empirical material for the PhD project is collected at Aarhus Theatre, where I am doing a case study. The organization is chosen because the theatre continuously strives to improve its organizing around the plays through permanent evaluation meetings. At these meetings the work processes connected to the staging of the plays are evaluated by employees. The activities of Aarhus theatre is cyclical, but with the specific structure that new artists, new managers in the figure of directors and set designers enter as project staf from the outside (almost) every time a new process is begun. In this article, I put the focus on the challenges of evaluation in the light of this construction.
