I stumbled across this the other day. Bill Strickland is amazing. All organisations need a Bill Strickland. I recommend you give it a look.

I particularly like this observation:

Artists are by nature entrepreneurs, they're just not called that," Strickland says. "They have the ability to visualize something that doesn't exist, to look at a canvas and see a painting. Entrepreneurs do that. That's what makes them different from businesspeople. Business people are essentially administrators. Entrepreneurs are by definition visionaries. Entrepreneurs and artists are interchangeable in many ways. The hip companies know that.
