Collective virtuosity in organizations: A study of peak performance in an orchestra
Stockholm School of Economics.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to build theory on peak performance at the group level. Peak performance transcends ordinary performance and is associated with a subjective experience in which one loses a sense of time and space as well as feels great joy and bliss. We chose to study this phenomenon at the group level through a methodology of participant observation in an orchestra. We found that groups can be transformed by their own performance in a reflexive process in which virtuosity, or individual peak performance, becomes collective. We offer a prepositional model of collective virtuosity in organizations, and offer directions for further research. © Blackwell Publishing Ltd 2007.
