I agree with Kevin that narrative is different with stores. Narrative is more affective way for company to understand the process of what they did wrong or right. In the other side, stories are just to tell and it is not really interactive to the company.

I agree with the article, any company can have their own stories. However, it is hard to get attention by the customers in these days. and I think the narrative has more powerful influences then a just stories. of course, it depends how you narrate the stories to customers, it might get worse.

All of these comments are very interesting and I think some additional points need to be made. First, not all narratives re stories. A report or an essay or a testimonial are all types of narratives and are definitely not stories. A report can have stories within it, but is still a type of narrative. If people understood the DYNAMICS of storytelling they would know that stories continually evolve and are all about engagement. Storytelling is NOT about telling, it's about the co-created experience that happens when people are experiencing the telling and listening at the same time. Stories by their nature are interactive. Can narrative evolve? Sure. But the points made at the conference is setting up a false dichotomy between narratives and stories, which when put into practice, is less relevant. The most important piece to pay attention to is the engagement and evolving nature of stories. Saying stories end and narratives don't is silly and not true.
