THE ORIGINS OF OUR BRAND NAME MOCHA MEDIA®
The Art of Business Development & Technology Management is founded on how we blend tools, strategies, policies, and know-how to produce effective results;
The first step starts with identifying the best ingredients. We call this "the base." The second step is to add whatever ingredients we need to enhance that base. Our business development & consulting practice follows this process whereby we continually add ingredients, stir, then taste of course, and so on until we produce the right blend of ingredients that when brought together produce an outstanding result.
The culture of great business development is synonymous to coffee making in that we all have an important part to play by working together to find the right "blend" of ingredients to produce a fantastic product, experience, or result.
MOCHA MEDIA® BUSINESS CULTURE
Mocha Media's® corporate culture is founded on our "blend" of multi-cultural, multi-national, and multi-talented cast members each of whom harnesses a wealth of knowledge and experience. Our members are experts, non-experts, specialists, generalists, and everything in between sharing one general trait of gene called "passion," Each person adds their own blend of experiences and knowledge to make for a worldlier engagement to provide exceptional service.
Alfonso E. Chávez founded Mocha Media® in Boston, MA in 1996 in response to the increasing demand for computer – driven multimedia systems, along with his desire and passion for business, technology, and media. His talent and success with IT Consulting & Multimedia Production took flight while working on his B.A. at Boston College, and then later his B.M at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Subsequently, he incorporated Mocha Media, Inc.® Los Angeles, CA in 1998.
Alfonso’s unique combination of computer expertise, business administration, media production & marketing gave him a unique perspective on how to help companies optimize their technology and new media systems. In addition to his ability to conceptualize, produce and direct his client’s projects, Alfonso developed an expertise for IT engineering, and software development. He recognizes not only the need for integrated hardware and software systems, but high-quality content to run on them as well. Leveraging his business, technology, and entertainment experience and in-depth knowledge of computers, he began serving the music, film, retail, and corporate industries. Building on his reputation for success, and an impressive client base, he has worked with organizations such as Countrywide, National Geographic, Brezza Energy, HARPO, Red Wagon Productions, Partido Accion Nacional (PAN Mexico), Sony, CBS, C Publishing, Samuel French, Kathy Ireland Worldwide – Sterling Winters Company, & WhatSheBuys.com to non-profits such as the WorldVision, Operation Smile, and others.
In his continued endeavor to be disruptive, Alfonso enrolled in the prestigious Columbia University Technology Management program in 2017 earning a Master’s in Executive Technology Management in 2019. He collaborated, and worked with some of the brightest minds in high-tech from Columbia's campus in Paris, France in residency and virtually with the extended cohort at Columbia University in New York City.
This experience of a life-time has given Alfonso and the Mocha Media® team the incredible blessing of interpersonal development, corporate culture, IToDD (informational technology-organizational design & development), executive leadership, strategic advocacy, and behavioral development. As a virtual CIO/CTO/CISO, Alfonso and his team aspire to lead their clients in technology innovation, disruption, strategic advocacy, IT-Wellness, and IT organizational development & management.
MOCHA MEDIA® TEAM
Mocha Media’s team utilizes its creative and technical expertise to serve its clients. Each person is an integral part of the development process introducing specialized and highly innovative digital development and production techniques to produce the elements and ingredients necessary for each project. This key strength brings a project’s concept & objectives to life while complying with the client’s requirements and audience’s needs. Today, Alfonso and his expert team are comprised of extra-ordinary to meta-ordinary individuals.
The mathematician George Pólya popularized heuristics in the mid–20th century, in his book How to Solve It. He learned mathematical proofs as a student but he did not know, nor was he taught, the ways mathematicians arrived at such proofs. How to Solve It is a collection of ideas about heuristics that he taught to mathematics students – ways of looking at problems and formulating solutions.
If you are having difficulty understanding a problem, try drawing a picture.
If you can’t find a solution, try assuming that you have a solution and seeing what you can derive from that (“working backward”).
If the problem is abstract, try examining a concrete example.
Try solving a more general problem first (the “inventor’s paradox”: the more ambitious plan may have more chances of success).
Draw the picture to understand what problems we are trying to solve.
Draw the picture to understand the business challenges and how to confront them.
Draw the picture to understand what is lacking in one’s business to understand how to fill a need.
Draw the picture to make sure that everyone has a better sense of what we’re trying to accomplish.
