Well, life does bring interesting opportunities my way. Next week I’m going to attend Strategic Product Manager™ training by Blackblot in Tel-Aviv. The product I have in mind is a game that helps elicit marketing and sales stories and it’s core technology is storytelling. The game’s prototype, created by The Story Telling Company Inc. has been tested several times already and is showing some interesting and innovative results. It’s about time we take it forward.
In this case, the entire idea for the game sits tight on storytelling technology and it’s ability to deliver. Another unusual facet of the game is the requirement from the participant to work as a team. Sales people who met the game didn’t like this specific idea at first but eventually they jumped in realizing the outcome will serve them all and will not limit other “personal charm” techniques and tricks they might be already using.
I’ll be reporting about the experience via Social Media channels as the course proceeds. I might even have questions in attempt to elicit crowd-wisdom so stay tuned and keep wise 🙂
