Opening Ceremonies

January 28, 2013

While not quite as coordinated as Beijing, we kicked off Factory Week 2013 with a rapid filling of the 50-ft. project whiteboard. As coffee steamed from cups under the Speak Easy's gray skylight, there was a palpable sense of anticipation and excitement–kind of like picking teams in the playground, except here, everyone is chosen first for some niche or another.

I'm always impressed by the immediacy of the SmallBox team stepping up and owning their projects from Day One, Hour One. After we reached the end of the list (we almost needed a 4th whiteboard...), teams split off to begin going over responsibilities, leaving no stone...er, project, unturned. Check out the complete list here.
