Description

Organizational aims can be achieved most efficiently by the use of organizational story telling. The most basic way of human thinking is narrative, therefore analytical and logical thinking rely on this narrative basis heavily. In order to influence the organizational culture essentially, as well as the behaviour of the members of the organization, we have to build on personal experiences. Personal experiences can be reached in the narrative mode of human thinking, i.e. through storytelling. Whether our aim is to build organizational coherence, to improve commitment of members, to facilitate change, to transfer organizational culture to new members, or to defend the organization from rumours, the most effective approach is a well selected and created story.
