The premise of the project is that there are two kinds of companies in the world today: storytelling companies that convey the story of their brand, business or product by telling that story, usually through PR or paid advertising; and storydoing companies that consciously convey their story through direct action. Storydoing companies use their core story as an organizing principle for activities throughout the company: new product development, recruiting, compensation, partnerships, as well as any communication that they create. Our hypothesis is that storydoing companies spend fewer dollars on paid media, and the dollars they do spend work harder which makes storydoing companies more efficient. This site contains the results of a first round of analysis of 42 different publicly traded companies. We’d love for you to have a look at the methodology, the criteria, and the results, and let us know what you think.
