The reference for the study on cognitive complexity of presidents is below. I see that it was written before Reagan was president, so I must be mis-remembering that part. Phil Tetlock was one of my professors at UC Berkeley, and he may have talked about later presidents (e.g., Reagan) during his lectures. In any case, […]
Just got back from the Human Factors & Ergonomics Society conference in New York City. The conference hotel was in Times Square, and it was hopping! New York is an amazing place. I think most of the tourists were from other countries – taking advantage of the de-valued dollar as it tanks even more after […]
Last week I was pleased to make connections with two members of the Cognitive Edge network: Julian Still and Gloria Fox.

I’m awaiting the arrival of friends from Paris – I was there during a terrible August heat wave several years ago, and will be happy to welcome them to our Oakland summer temperature of about 70 deg! I’m sure they won’t miss the Parisian heat. I’ve gotten some good suggestions for making sense of the […]
I’m not sure what my guest blogs are going to look like – it’s hard for an academic to let the thoughts flow, so to speak, without thinking about what the reviewers will say… As I said earlier, I’m excited about using the Cognitive Edge techniques in my research. As a first crack at it, […]
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.
