Abstract

This chapter will briefly introduce a selection of storytelling methods that have been successfully tested and applied in organizations. For example: “Appreciative inquiry”—involving stories for large conferences, “Transfer Stories” for preserving expert knowledge, “Springboard Stories” for the support of change processes, and “Re-authoring Leadership”. Their depiction will direct particular attention toward the domains of cultural change, organizational culture, knowledge transfer, and leadership.
