To show how the stories told by people in organisations need to be reckoned with in order to give change a chance.
The paper's approach is a case study and analytical approach to storytelling.
Stories are told from different perspectives, related to what needs to be achieved by the audience.
The scope of the paper is framed by the analytical approach to storytelling which in this case is related to learning modes.
Organisations that are open for change need to give room to individual voice/stories in order to live up to the possibilities of change.
Stories do not always address an audience that is supposed to hear the story; they can get out of control.
