040 Narratives as attractors

In this episode, I continue the discussion of organizations as complex adaptive systems (begun in Episode 017). Organizational narratives can serve as attractors to align behavior within an organization to its broader goals and objectives, thus providing a tool to help shape an organization’s cognition and action(s) as the future flows toward it.
