I have been doing a fair amount of speaking at various groups and conferences lately and have noticed that while I am telling the story of some deep-dive research there are always some people in the audience who are shaking their head or giving a bit of a tsk tsk when I talk about the unexamined assumptions some of our clients have made.

There's a deli near the office that many of us frequent for lunch. They make a good sandwich at a good price (for Gastown anyway). Recently, they changed ownership and although they kept the basic format, small changes began to creep in. Now, I'm all for change but some of the new ideas were questionable. One minor change in particular annoyed me.

Lately stories and storytelling have become a bit of a theme around ADGi. It started a couple of months ago with me noting that a company we were doing some business with referred Very Often to their “story” as in “we have a great story to tell about our SharePoint implementation services” or “I met with those guys and didn’t like their story.”
