I originally passed up on the original article cited here because its focus was on transmedia storytelling. And I also passed on the research outcomes reported here by Latitutde on the Futue of Storytelling.
But I like this article because it translated the original work on transmedia storytelling into a business application that wasn't just about marketing. The author, Lenn Millbower, focuses on bringing the lessons of storytelling and transmedia work into corporate training/ knowledge transfer.
The 4 'I's listed in the post are right on. Storytelling has always had immersive qualities to it for the last 100,000 years. Immersion is critical in learning. The other 'I's are equally important.
It is a quick article with good insights -- so go grab all four of the 'I's.
Now the reason I ignored the Latitude research project was because it is basing its opinions about the future of storytelling based on the people it polled -- gamers and such. Hardly a representative group. I didn't find their insights interesting. But if you want to read it yourself, follow the link to the research that's provided in this article.

A dialogue on the subject of organizational storytelling; narrative as a leadership capability. Author and story consultant David Hutchens of www.DavidHutche...
Woo hoo! Here are two of my favorite colleagues -- David Hutchens and Paul Smith -- talking about Paul's recent book Lead With A Story.
Paul, who works for Proctor and Gamble, shares with us his insights about storytelling and leadership based not only on his research with CEOs around the country, but also from his own corporate expeirence. That's what I love -- a guy in the trenches sharing lessons with us all.
Now David is no slouch either and is one of the earliest practitioners of working with stories in organizations around knowledge management, knowledge transfer, and systems thinking. He's been on my bookshelf for years now, and I always enjoy our conversations together.
This 60-minute video -- from a Google Hangout that happened a few days ago -- is great. I love the questions David asks and I love what Paul shares with us -- stories about PPTs, how to avoid being a boring, and learning who the real hero is. And that's just for starters!
Thanks guys for a terrific session.
Hey -- each one of you is a leader in your own right. Take the time to dig in here and get even better as a leader!
