The talking stick has been used by many native cultures to symbolize who had the right to speak during important council leadership meetings. The leading elder would hold the talking stick and begin the discussion. It was then passed amongst council members until all who wished to speak had done so. When all points of view were heard, a decision would be made.
At Talking Stick Technology, we believe businesses need a technology leader on their decision making council. We use the spirit of the talking stick to help businesses understand their options for where technology touches their business.
