zzz- Our Productions

We produce workplace drama.  Our subject is people.  Our background is work, work, work in this technological, highly connected, rabidly capitalized age.  How do we act in the workplace?  How do we form relationships and make decisions?  What does this wave of technology do to our ability to think clearly, act decisively, and appreciate our fellow worker?  These are our topics that we explore through the adventure of a hapless consulting firm with the name of “How We Manage Stuff.”

How Not to [Suck] at Consulting 

hwms.coverart Consulting.  More and more technical work is done by consultants, people who are free to move through the world and use their skills.  They are also people who are limited, contractually, to narrow contacts with their clients. Set in Hamburg Germany, this series explores by following the story of one of our crack consulting teams .  You get a chance to see what works (and what doesn’t) without facing the consequences.

SidePocket

hwms.coverart How should young tech leaders think about boards, investment and other organizations aspects of startups? We take a look at that problem by going back in time and telling the story of SidePocket, the first (and most) successful startup SidePocket. Set in Detroit and Silicon Valley, it takes a look at governance problems that are both easy and surprisingly hard to solve. 

Artifically Intelligent  hwms.coverart

Will human beings become obsolete? And if they don’t become obsolete, will they have anything to do? In her first solo effort, our intern (who has invented many a title for herself) takes a look at some of the ideas of Artificial Intelligence that we no longer think of them as intelligent. As is often the case, shoes play an important role in the story. 

We Read It Do You Don’t Have To 

hwms.coverartOur cast tries to help you stay abreast of current literature and read those classics that you felt that you should have read.  In fact, they almost never quite cover the material as you think they should but in the process, they help you see why this material is relevant to you and why it is note quite as boring as you might fear.
