The Cynefin Framework

In the continuing venture to share my findings in the treasure trove that is the internet, I’ve today come to the Cynefin Framework. Cynefin isn’t an abbreviation but a Welsh word meaning “habitat” or “place”, signifies the multiple factors in our environment and our experience that influence us in ways we can never understand.

Its creator, Dave Snowden, explains and introduces the Cynefin Framework in the following video with a brief explanation of its origin and evolution and a detailed discussion of its architecture and function. Details of Dave’s regular one-day seminars entitled “The Cynefin Seminar” can be found here http://cognitive-edge.com/cynefin-seminar.php .

Any thoughts on the implications of this model? I’ve got some of course but I’ll save that for a later post.
