Success & Temptation

hwms.coverart

What’s success?  A million a month? A million a month in revenue for a young software firm? (Remember, this story comes from the 1990s, Podcastland.) It’s not a bad start.

But what do you do with success? Throw a party? Lease a new office building? Build your technical staff? Listen to your board and take a stab at controlling the market?

Such is the problem faced by Vinny, the CEO of SidePocket. He doesn’t know what path to take even with the siren call of temptation sweeps through the air.

 

Cast:

  • Maddie the 8-year-old Entrepreneur – Zoe Anastassiou
  • Vinny the CTO – Geoffrey Grier
  • Molly of SidePocket – Caraid O’Brien
  • Carl of G&P – Josh LaForce
  • Rick at the Converence – Ron Bianchi
  • Karen from CalFed – Debbon Ayer

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

Featuring:

    • Debbon Ayer as Penelope Othmar, Principal of the Lillian Moller Gilbreth School
    • Josh LaForce as Sullivan from Policy and PR
    • Ron Bianchi as Bix, the Master Scrum Master
    • Zoe Anastassiou as the impatient Customer
