What's with the name Sidecar?
When I was embarking on starting up my own consultancy, I was in Whanganui one Boxing Day watching the annual Cemetery Circuit motorcycle races. The last event of the day was the sidecar race, and I was immediately taken by the way the sidecar (and the swinger) worked with the motorbike (and the rider) to weave their way around the track.
The goal was clear (to win the race) and the sidecar swinger knew what they had to do to get them both there; by moving with and against the bike, putting their body on the line, getting very close to the ground, the wheels and the exhaust by pitching themselves from side-to-side. Then at the end of the race they got off the bike, high-fived and went to the after-party together. Just how I like to do it!
The business metaphors are obvious and it perfectly describes what we do and how we do it.
