Abstract [en]

TO MAKE SENSE of and learn about their work environments, people actively construct their own knowledge and share stories of their experience. Using the metaphor of the landscape, Bruner(1990) likened books’ stories to “mountain tops jutting out of the sea. Self-contained islands though they may seem, they are upthrusts of an underlying geography that is at once local and, [yet] part of a universal pattern”. This is also true for stories. But telling stories is particularly challenging in a transient organization where people are hired on a voluntary, temporary basis. Such is the case of a nonprofit music festival organization in Sweden, which is rebuilt every year starting with recruiting the top management.
