Workplace learning: narrative and professionalization

Workplace learning: narrative and professionalization Purpose – To show how the stories told by people in organisations need to be reckoned with in order to give change a chance. Design/methodology/approach – The paper's approach is a case study and analytical approach to storytelling. Findings – Stories are told from different perspectives, related to what needs to be achieved by the audience. Research limitations/implications – The scope of the paper is framed by the analytical approach to storytelling which in this case is related to learning modes. Practical implications – Organisations that are open for change need to give room to individual voice/stories in order to live up to the possibilities of change. Originality/value – Stories do not always address an audience that is supposed to hear the story; they can get out of control. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Organizational Change Management Emerald Publishing

Findings – Stories are told from different perspectives, related to what needs to be achieved by the audience. Research limitations/implications – The scope of the paper is framed by the analytical approach to storytelling which in this case is related to learning modes. Practical implications – Organisations that are open for change need to give room to individual voice/stories in order to live up to the possibilities of change. Originality/value – Stories do not always address an audience that is supposed to hear the story; they can get out of control.
