Abstract [en]

What follows is a collectively improvised story that emerged as four authors set out to explore their experiences and thoughts concerning organizational stories. The story is a reflection of their collective, creative, improvisational sense making via the construction of a narrative. The authors were selected because of their experience in the fields of organizational storytelling, narrative theory, and improvisation. They began by asking themselves What would happen if we engaged in improvisation to collectively create a story that makes sense of organizational research? After several rounds of reviews, they added reader voices, along with their own insights gained from their experience in constructing Truth or Consequences.
