journal contributionposted on 20.09.2013, 13:31 by Michaela Driver
This study advances research on storytelling and organizational change by exploring forty stories of change from a psychoanalytic, particularly Lacanian, perspective. It suggests that stories of organizational change serve an important and, to date, under-explored role as creative and empowering encounters with failed fantasies of self, work and organization. Implications for research on storytelling and organizational change are discussed.
