In a fermentation process, ingredients are combined and then allowed to be changed by maintaining a precise environment where helpful agents of change are allowed to thrive (and unhelpful agents are not). At Zymocosm we seek to support healthy environments for helpful change.
Our organizational and personal development work incorporates elements from information technology, open source software, and improvised theater. We love automating things for efficiency and so humans can put their energy into healthy, nourishing connections. Accomplishing this always requires a mix of difficult (but enriching and cathartic) human conversations, technical implementation expertise, and willingness to look deeply at root causes.
We are a technology consulting company with a theater company attached, and we also run workshops and classes on a variety of topics (often incorporating techniques from applied improvisation). Why? Because technology alone doesn't solve problems or make things better. We have never encountered a technical challenge that didn't also touch on people challenges, and we love to work on both!
