The Mechanics of Storytelling

A SAS Best Practices E-Book


Analogies are a powerful tool that can help an audience grasp complex ideas. This ebook uses the technique by comparing a mechanic’s journey to a storyteller’s assembly process defined by the acronym, “PARTS”: people, analytics, requirements, tools and success factors. It highlights useful tips for completing an audience profile and a storyteller checklist. It addresses the question of which comes first, data or story. It also includes examples, a four-step design roadmap and eight best practices to keep you on the road to success. Anyone can tell a story if they have the right parts. Just know, there’s some assembly required.
