The Adventures of Maddie Malone, Strategy Geek

The story is very specific to a certain type of non-profit workplace, but I'm hoping it touches on some universal themes: The triumph of ego over effort. The difficulties of holding people accountable. Distraction thumps passion. The cheese stands alone.
