Abstract

The article discusses how the metaphor of jazz music making is used to facilitate visualisation and application of more 'holistic' approaches, professionalism, strategic thinking, integration, and creativity in the strategic management capstone course. The evidence shows that students adapt well to and enjoy the jazz metaphor, and find that it facilitates their learning of the subject.
