Yes To The Mess is a book that explores how the improvisational "jazz mind-set" and the skills that go along with it are essential for effective leadership today. The author, Frank J. Barrett, is an accomplished jazz pianist and a management scholar who has studied and performed with some of the jazz greats such as Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins. He draws on his own experience as a jazz musician and his research on organizational behavior to show how leaders can master the art of unlearning, perform and experiment simultaneously, and take turns soloing and supporting each other.
