Winter 2014
Edition VI

Flipping the Model

The sixth edition of Factory Week is set for January 27 – 31, 2014. We're taking a whole new approach. We've created a shortlist of questions to answer, and chosen a single goal: to define what a mature SmallBox looks like. This will be our most contemplative Factory Week yet.

We're resisting the urge to build stuff (we love that, of course!). But this Factory Week is all about having space for reflection and visioning. Read more about this on the SmallBox blog.

With our clients, we frequently play the role of facilitator, bringing outside perspective. We understood that for this Factory Week, as we placed or focus toward vision and what SmallBox looks like in 2024, we needed someone to play that role for us. Enter Jeremy Houchens. Read more.
