StoryTech is an innovative project based at the University of Minnesota. It's purpose is:
"to [introduce] a very old process that enhances your strategic ability to
deal with change and opportunity"
The process is stories.
"Stories are truly software of the mind. They operate simultaneously at
many levels of intricacy and simplicity. Stories are also multifaceted and
holographic. They function at multiple levels across human consciousness
to collapse complexity into creative simplicities."
StoryTech is based on the premise that:
"A new economy based on ideas, knowledge, and innovation is underway. This rapidly emerging idea-knowledge-innovation economy has largely overtaken societies by surprise. Both its swiftness and the depth of its impacts were largely unforeseen only a few brief years ago. This new economy is heavily premised on strategic‘intentional processes’ rather than ‘pre-conditioned responses."
Nice statement of the problem.
