The Storytelling Organization: A Study of Story Performance in an Office-Supply Firm.
Boje, David M.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v36 n1 p106-26 Mar 1991
Analyzes how employees in a large office supply firm performed stories to make sense of events, introduce change, and gain political advantage. These stories were dynamic, varied by context, and were often challenged and reinterpreted by listeners. The collective story telling system allowed members to supplement individual memories with institutional memory. (51 references) (MLH)
