OverviewImprov Theatre is about two or more people achieving a goal yet within an uncertain framework. In Improv there is profound collaboration, even when there may be an element of competition. Business success can be a very similar process. It's about individuals succeeding. It's about teams succeeding.
To see a live Improv show is to be amazed. A team of people create a show from audience suggestions. The drills and skills of Improv enable performers to respond spontaneously to each other and to what is happening around them. In business, there are apparently more constraints (time, cash, talent, resources, "we can't do that"). In Improv, constraints actually serve to liberate creativity.
