We proudly present: „Hotair Ltd“- Our virtual company
We have been looking for a way to introduce a little bit of humour into the seriousness of the project management world. So, we have decided to launch a small virtual company with virtual employees: The Hotair Ltd.
The staff members go about their daily business, have coffee together, fight and make up with each other and have their trouble with the project work. Well, they need to. Because, by using them as examples, we will teach you what a project is, how to do a project planning right, how our SMART+ goal setting system works, etc. etc.
All employees as well as the company are pure fiction. Similarities with existing personalities or even with you would be purely accidental and are not intentional. It goes without saying that the characters are larger-than-life. You would never meet such people in real life, wouldn’t you?
We admit we found inspiration in the true live. Both their quirks and the stories we let them experience. Take it as the sum of all our experiences and adventures related to project management which we acquired in various jobs, companies and countries, now here condensed, concentrated and much larger-than-life for a better illustration. And the picture painted here may well be too rosy from time to time. 😉
A further inspiration for us was – difficult to detect – a little Gaul village and its habitants. We love Asterix and his fellows and have tried to find names for our characters close to the great model. Nothing compares to the original and we don’t want to copy either. None of our characters appears in an Asterix comic (at least until now). And all our characters are drawn by myself. At this point, we would like to point out that all our images are protected by copyright law and any utilization require the prior written consent of the author, means me.
You will find the Hotair Ltd characters on a regular basis in our blog posts. By clicking on the names, you can find out who is hiding behind Projectix, Bigboss, Confusina & Co. If you can’t wait to know them, please go to the presentation page on our Website. On this page, you will find all characters and names and you can click on the photos to learn more about each one of them.
