In this episode of The Thinking Leader, Bryce Hoffman and Marcus Dimbleby talk with Dave Snowden, father of the Cynefin framework and Founder of The Cynefin Company.
They discuss Dave’s latest addition to the Cynefin framework, Estuarine Mapping. Dave talks about Estuarine Mapping’s roots in the constructor theory of quantum mechanics, as well as its strong basis in philosophy and biology. Estuarine Mapping breaks down management into constraints and constructors, emphasizing the flows of possibility in any system.
Dave also gives his opinion on Agile and how it has entered a commodification phase, particularly due to the introduction of SAFe. Bryce, Marucs, and Dave talk about the benefits of the different methodologies of Agile, how the Cynefin framework fits into Agile, and the future of Agile.
In this episode: - What is Estuarine Mapping and how it fits into the Cynefin ecosystem - How to enable and govern your constraints to work for you - How SAFe has caused the commodification of Agile - Why companies don't always take the right path
