It’s hubris, of course, but it is more than that.

Self-will plays a role. As does ambition. Plus the complete inability to understand why the rest of the world doesn’t want what you want.

The Tech Giants (and many of the small techies as well) have poor relationships with government institutions and, increasingly, the public at large.

We have a new series in the works, one that tries to understand the human mistakes that have gotten Big Tech to this point.

Our Washington Office has taken a new client, an online retailed called TheGeneralStore, and is working to get the company a more favorable regulatory environment and a better public image.

Jasmine, one of the staff members in our office, explains.

Leaving Detroit

hwms.coverartHow do you make decisions about tech companies – especially tech startups?  It’s not as easy, or as straightforward or as rational as we might like to think.  Over the next 7 episodes, we will look at our long term CTO, Vinny, make decisions about his original startup.  

Vinny is making these decisions under duress, which doesn’t help.  His wife died just as he was starting his company.  No one trusts him to make good decisions.  And he’s not sure that he can make them himself.

Cast:

  • Maddie the 8-year-old Entrepreneur – Zoe Anastassiou
  • Vinny the CTO – Geoffrey Grier
  • Curt of SidePocket – Noah Masur
  • Dennis of SidePocket – Jake Minevich
  • Jessie of SidePocket – Sahara Ale

Data Driven Decisions and the Office in India

We sent the cast to Bangalore. We went looking for an office. It was a hard task. Harder than any of them thought.   There are a lot of choices for a small tech organization in india and a lot of opinions among the cast.  So they ultimately resorted to numbers – not because they trusted numbers. They used a numerical process to build trust in themselves.

Cast:

  • Jameela the Bangalore Office Manager – Saraha Ale
  • Anna the Intern – Sarah Corbyn Woolf
  • Sulley from PR – Josh LaForce
  • Evelyn the Office Manager – Margaux Amie
  • Bix the Master Scrum Master – Ron Bianchi
