Using a retrospective, personal narrative approach, I detail my evolving understanding of when Organizational Theater (OT) works and when it doesn't. With this, I highlight the importance of working with OT professionals, speculate on what to do when there are no pros around to help, and conclude with some brief observations on how current social trends and changes in technology might affect OT's future.
