The Components of a Management Story

  • Title: Title is the most crucial thing if you want to drive the attention of the employers to read your Management Story. Think it from a reader’s perspective, as both you and I know that a book is always judged by its cover. So you need to understand that people only read Management Stories if the title of the stories can drive their attention interest.
  • Challenge: Just after the title, you need to tell about the challenges or the problems of the situation. Every employee or manager faces a complicated unusual situation in their work. Describe the problem in detail so that the Management Story grabs the attention of the reader.
  • Background: There may be several problems in Management on which you need to work on. So your task is to highlight the major problem based on the aim and objectives that the company sets.
  • Possible Options: After writing about the challenges you need to determine the goal that you had to achieve for your company. So that you can discuss all the possible options you had, to solve that problem and fulfill the goal. This also denotes that you have stretched yourself to the fullest and taken all the possible solutions into account.
  • Decision: In other words, it’s how you planned a strategy to address the pain points/ problems. You need to tell everything in detail and how you implemented that practically, step by step to fulfill the challenge.
  • Results: Share about what was achieved as the result of the decisions/actions taken by you. Numbers and analytical graphs always quantify your contribution to the company, so don’t ever forget them. Yes!! Numbers do really speak for themselves.
