About This Session
This session will be both fun and massively informing!
How would you like a magic x-ray to shine on your work and tell you how to approach it?
Have you ever taken brilliant, decisive action, and it was wholly, utterly wrong? Or been completely stumped about how to make progress in what you thought was a straightforward situation? Or worked on a project that took dramatically longer than planned? Used Six-Sigma, PRINCE2, Design Thinking, or Lean Startup when an Agile, Critical Chain, Waterfall, or RAD approach might have been better?
The Cynefin Sense-making Framework (pronounced kuh-nev-in) is a decision-making framework currently used for situational assessment in technology, industry, government, healthcare, and the military. Use it to understand what kind of situation you are dealing with, the combination of factors comprising that situation, and so decide on an appropriate set of responses.
Cynefin has its origins in Knowledge Management research in IBM in the 70s and has been developed and refined using Complexity Science and other disciplines to be the most useful decision-making tool available to managers today, a driving force in the growing field of sense-making.
Until I finish building the magic x-ray, Cynefin is the very best tool you can use for situational executive management decision support at any scale!
