17710: Manage for Profit, or for Use, or for a Good Lunch

hwms.coverart

What’s the best way to manage technology?

Build a strong, highly structured organization?

Or do you just build a market and let the laws of supply and demand decide?

Our staff meets at a farmer’s market near the Washington Office to decide just such questions.  The answer, it turns out, involves Task Rabbits, a subway pass, and an order of Home-Made Potato Chips

17705: Reading Peter Drucker My Poppets

Perspective.  We read old books to get a perspective on the events of our time. When Peter Drucker wrote Concept of the Corporation, he knew little about computers, nothing about the future Internet, and only the theory of the Gig Economy.  But when he wrote that General Motors was the model for the American Corporation, he described ideas that might just as well apply to Uber and its undisciplined CEO.

The Lillian Moller Gilbreth School for Disruptive Innovation: An Introduction

hwms.coverart

We started it as a joke and then it became more and more important to our approach to teaching agility, governance and innovation.  In our podcast, the Lillian Moller Gilbreth School for Disruptive Innovation is the neighborhood school for our Silicon Valley Office.  But what a neighborhood school is.  The Gilbreth School takes our youngest entrepreneurs and turns them into disruptive technology leaders. If economic innovation is our national credo, then the Lillian Moller Gilbreth School is the fount of that belief.  It allows us to ask how we conceive technological progress and consider the costs we pay as we pursue that goal.

The Principle of the Lillian Moller Gilbreth School, explains the curricula.
