We can improve upon the way we communicate, and thereby improve upon the number of people in a group who can share and take part in that communication. In fact, No group is too large ! Point is, when speaking in terms of a Metaphor and the pre-defined reference model that everyone associates back to that metaphor, everyone has a shared understanding of the terms being used. And this makes storytelling everybody's job! Which alone gives those groups that can do this a great advantage over those who can not. It's a powerful thing, communication. And it's even better when that communication is in the form of a Story.

I would like to share what I have learned in this form of communication, using Henrik Kniberg's famous Metaphor as an example Metaphor template from which a story language can be used, by everyone; to write the story of their product value, together.

Note that this includes also how we go about describing Product Roadmaps as well - as that Story!
