Storytelling for Problem-Solving

by Venkat on July 13, 2011

Yesterday, I spoke about Tempo at the SoCAL Kanban/Lean Software Meetup, hosted by Pascal Pinck. It was an interesting mixed audience of about 40 odd — designers, startup types, big company types and a sprinkling of entertainment industry people and others. Since this was Los Angeles, I decided to focus on the storytelling ideas in the book.

Here are the slides and video; both have the voice track. Should be self-explanatory whether or not you’ve read the book.

A very interesting presentation. Some of the terminology I found difficult to understand. Maybe I’ll have to buy the book to understand it fully.

Actually I am doing my PhD on a simillar topic “Narrative structures in knowledge creation related to problem solving”
I too have attempted to come up with a model of Narrative of Knowledge creation associated with problem solving event.
It would be nice if you could have a look at my thesis and give your feedback. Are you based in India? So far I have not met anyone in India working on this topic.

Sachin,

I’m intrigued by the title of your PhD dissertation. I’m currently looking at the use of narrative in the writing of solutions to introductory undergraduate physics problems. Do you have any published material yet that I could read.

Thanks,

Andrew
