  3. Making sense of complexity with Dave Snowden

    Different problems need different solutions. An approach that aids in decision making is The Cynefin framework, which was created in 1999 by Dave Snowden and was born with principles related to theories of how we perceive things. Cynefin (pronounced “kuh-nev-in”) is a word of Welsh origin that means habitat or place of many belongings.

    Cynefin is a model that can be used in different sectors, at different levels in an organization and in different contexts, in fact context is the key word for Cynefin. Its main use is for effective decision making based on the analysis of the context in which we are inserted.

    We are roasting marshmallows with Dave Snowden, founder and chief scientific officer of The Cynefin Company, formerly known as Cognitive Edge, a Singapore-based management-consulting firm specializing in complexity and sense-making, to thrive in a complex world.

    Dave's specialties include: Sense making, Knowledge Management, Complexity Science applied to organisations and Narrative. Dave is well known for his pragmatic cynicism and iconoclastic style, and is a popular and passionate keynote speaker.

  4. Conversation with Dave Snowden

    The creator of the Cynefin framework and the person who first taught me about the complicated/complex distinction. This conversation was done for his community. If you aren't familiar with Daves work, there might be concepts that you haven't heard of before. I'd recommend being familiar with Dave's work.

  6. Design thinking and scaffolding in cultural transformation - Prof. Dave Snowden

    From TRANSFORMING CULTURE - MiL Foundation Forum Leadership Conference 2019. Design thinking, despite its potential has become increasingly commoditised. Government change labs tend to attract those who are already committed to change, the ‘usual suspects’.

    How do we shift away from linear approaches to designing novel solutions? How do we learn from evolution where rapid repurposing of existing capabilities has been responsible for major breakthroughs (flight for example) and allow innovation and change to happen in a non-linear way. Distributed ethnography & ideation and managed exaptation (or serendipity) offer huge potential. Focusing on creating scaffolding rather than an end product is also a key way in which we manage uncertainty without excessive control.
