About the Human Productivity Lab
melhorfotov2003.jpg
The Human Productivity Lab is the leading telepresence consulting firm for global Fortune 5000 corporations across a broad range of industry sectors like financial institutions, multinational telecommunications and pharmaceutical companies.  The Lab was founded by Howard S. Lichtman, a productivity-focused technologist who advises firms how to successfully deploy telepresence to enhance internal and external communications, cut costs and improve environmental responsibility by reducing business travel, and increase organizational productivity and bottom line revenue. On the vendor side, the Lab works with both established technology brands and emerging companies entering the telepresence industry to develop business strategy, sales force training and creative marketing.

While the Human Productivity Lab also works with top-tier technology brands and the many other new players entering the burgeoning telepresence industry, we maintain a position of vendor-neutrality toward all manufacturers, managed services, and network providers. In assessing end-user firms' needs, the Lab advises its clients with impartial evaluations of the many telepresence options available to them.

To take telepresence into the 22nd century and beyond, the Human Productivity Lab is developing PowWow Virtual, a global network of publicly available telepresence conferencing centers for which we are seeking partners and investors.

On the Web, the Human Productivity Lab Channel on YouTube attracts hundreds of subscribers and has served over 1,000,000 views of our posted video content. The Lab also publishes TelepresenceOptions.com, a multi-vendor sponsored survey of telepresence technologies, and the number one site on the Internet covering telepresence and effective visual collaboration.  Between the Human Productivity Lab and Telepresence Options, the Lab hosts over 30,000+ unique visitors per month.
 
Although the Human Productivity Lab embraces the advances in organizational communications and performance made possible by telepresence, our mission is firmly grounded by an awareness of technology's limits, and guided by an overarching respect for human values and interests.
 
While Productivity is the Lab's middle name, we always put the Human first.
