This e-book aims to explore the uses of stories as data by researchers into inter-organizational collaboration and the kinds of insights gained in such “storied” approaches. It is generally agreed that, at their most foundational, stories are a way of sense-making, a way of understanding a present, preserving or changing a past and dreaming a future. Inter-organizational collaborations, and the relationships they engender, are also enacted along temporal dimensions and as such, provide a promising space for researching the emergence, use and role that stories and storytelling plays in creating “promising” (or less promising) collaborative practices. The papers provide a greater understanding of issues crucial to collaboration, integrating aspects of research, issues of research and implications for practice.
