Corporate storytelling is all the rage. But before you can tell a story you need to know who the characters are. Mitt Romney got skewered for saying that corporations are people. But he wasn’t totally wrong. People have enormous influence on the personality and culture of an organization. They give it character. The great example of that is Apple Computer.
