The more astute reader may have noticed that I have been writing a series of blog posts that update previous work and explore new ways of defining the general field of naturalising sense-making, and more particularly anthro-complexity as a key aspect of that field. This is all sorting things out for the book or books. […]
I am officially on Day 13 of my strict Stay Home Orders. I have not stepped out of my house for 13 days, not even for groceries. The irony is that while my 14 day order expires on the 7th of April, Singapore has just announced a round of additional restrictions which means that all […]

This full-day recording offers four lecture sessions delivered by Steve Holt and Dave Snowden at a Cynefin® and Theory of Constraints Exploratory in July 2019 in Chicago. Anyone with interest in exploring the synergies and interplay between the Theory of Constraints and the Cynefin® framework with an anthro-complexity perspective will get significant value in these recorded lectures. Noting the many examples and connecting the cross-references between Steve’s and Dave’s lectures, viewers will have an opportunity to consider applications and methods to improve processes, performance and ultimately results across a range of operating environments. The Cynefin lecture sessions in particular will offer those interested in innovation, weak-signal detection, and organisational change novel options for tackling challenging issues and creating lasting operational improvement impacts in their organisations. Complimenting these opportunities with the TOC methods and instruction offered by Steve Holt delivers the intended benefit of this lecture series.Click here for an overview of sessions.

This week CE hosted an open webinar on the topic of Cynefin & Theory of Constraints. This webinar featured CE practitioners and TOC experts, Steve Holt, Jabe Bloom, Greg Brougham, and Hilbert Robinson. Steve Holt was the lead host and the others served as the panel of experts, some with more Cynefin experience while others with TOC experience […]
As our business contexts become increasingly complex, the success rate of large scale transformation efforts and projects are rapidly decreasing. Many have been looking for answers to improve their performance and results, often jumping from one method to the next in search of “The Answer”. It is not uncommon nowadays for people to have studied […]
The pictures here are from the first ever Cynefin Retreat in Snowdonia last year; our fourth retreat, the third of 2018 will be in the same location in a few weeks time. Last year we put together some interesting people and just let things happen; this year we have been more structured. In Whistler earlier […]
I’ve been developing a theory of constraints both as a method for strategy mapping and as a way of better understanding domains and sub-domains in Cynefin. That thinking was in part stimulus for the liminal version of Cynefin. I’ve used a base distinction of Fixed/Governing constraints for order and Enabling constraints for complex. The […]
In my post of yesterday I identified Dark Constraints within my wider category of resilience. The reference is to the idea of dark matter in cosmology. Something like 27% of the mass and energy in the observable universe is attributed to matter that we cannot detect with current technology. We know it is there by […]
The Cynefin Company (formerly known as Cognitive Edge) was founded in 2005 by Dave Snowden. We believe in praxis and focus on building methods, tools and capability that apply the wisdom from Complex Adaptive Systems theory and other scientific disciplines in social systems. We are the world leader in developing management approaches (in society, government and industry) that empower organisations to absorb uncertainty, detect weak signals to enable sense-making in complex systems, act on the rich data, create resilience and, ultimately, thrive in a complex world.
