NPR's Rick Karr reports on The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, which has no conductor. Musicians work in small groups to determine the ensemble's approach to a given piece of music, then communicate that approach to the group as a whole. The orchestra is in residence this semester at New York's Baruch College School of Business, where MBA students are learning how to transport this model of a "flat" organization from the rehearsal room to the boardroom.
