The Role of Stories In Engineering

Consider the words of Confucius as you wrestle with your next PowerPoint presentation - -

"I hear and I forget.  I see and I remember.  I do and I understand."
Stories, especially those that are visually rich, add value and dimension to any presentation.  Engineers need to include analogies, stories and examples with any technical presentation.  The more human the connection (and less about the thing, stuff or gizmo), the greater the likelihood the audience will correctly interpret the message.
