Let us tell you a story.
A story of work. A story of pleasure. A story of the daily grind. A story of transcendence beauty. A story you like because its fun.
Imagine a cast of characters trying to make their way through the bleak promise of the modern industrial landscape. Machine Intelligence to the left of them. Disruptive Innovation to the right. A boss often absent from the scene. And the wrong person for the wrong decision at the wrong time front and center.
This is How We Manage Stuff. An episodic drama about the working world. Human characters who are trying to make something of themselves is a turbulent time. Anna the intern. Vinny the Venture Capitalist. Jameela, the data scientist. Evelyn the Office Manager. Rohit from IT. Sulley from PR. And of course, Maddie, the business leader of the future, currently a student at The Lillian Moller Gilbreth School for Disruptive Innovation.
No promotions. No sales. No advocacy. No best practices. Just a story. A story of work. A story of organization. A story of people. People like you and me.
Let us tell you a story.
How We Manage Stuff is produced by Djaghe LLC, David Alan Grier Executive Producer.
