“What’s the story behind these numbers?”

In order to make numbers speak, we sometimes tell story metaphors. Even when we come up with a solid metaphor, will our number story carry impact?

Behind numbers are people. Nations, citizens, communities, workers, customers. People holding a stake in our numbers. Is our story about those people?

Because that would be the story worth telling.
