Composing a Masterpiece
In an orchestra there are many individual great and very accomplished players of various instruments. Yet when they all play to the same composition together they bring out something special that they could never bring out when they play individually. And if they all play their own tune it never sounds great. Sounds more like noise.
Its the same with any team or a startup, there are many accomplished members of the staff but unless they all play to the same composition they will not produce the music of success. And if they all play their own music it never sounds good and it feels like the team is pulling in different directions.
That's where a composer plays a very crucial role, to write the music the way they envision it and then get everyone on the team to play to that composition.
This needs to be fine tuned everyday so that the orchestra plays in tune and is able to adjust to the everyday changes that are bound to occur.
Who is the composer in your team? Who writes the music for your team? Is your team ready to write the next masterpiece?
