The future of pricing strategy for attractions

The global amusement, leisure, and recreation industry is entering a transformative era where traditional pricing models are rapidly becoming obsolete.

In an industry burdened with high fixed costs and volatile demand, such sophisticated pricing structures are likely key to achieving sustainable profitability.

Psychological safety The secret of high-performing teams

Recent multi-year research programs at Harvard and Google are calling into question everything we thought we knew about team dynamics. It turns out, counterintuitively, that traditionally structured teams focused singularly on error-free task completion are not particularly high-performing.
