A professional colleague of mine spends one month of every year with her partner in a part of Australia known as the Kimberley. It is a very remote part of the north west section of Australia. They set up a camp along a track somewhere with all the gear they need and just spend time […]
One of the things I love to play with is perspective. I see Cognitive Edge has at least a few artists within its ranks – thanks Mark Spivey for your great post considering works of art. I grew up with my mum’s pictures in conte or charcoal and paper of different grades taped up all […]
My 13 year and soon to be 15 year old daughters have completely different personalities, but as they grow up I can clearly see bad habits that they have ‘caught’ unwittingly from their parents and no doubt these will travel on through the next generations.

The best blogs I’ve read have a good dose of reality as we connect bits in our lives up with other bits…. profession, community, family and friends.

Seeing people work in different contexts or shifting between them or attempting to make a team work with people from very different professional backgrounds can give some interesting insights. A number of […]
Multidisciplinary work should almost be the natural order of things for some disciplines, though reading some of the literature there is significant progress still to be made. A couple of the areas which stand out as actively working on this approach are health and the natural sciences. I found a link to post which refers […]
Celebrating a significant birthday in the last few weeks fits with having a bit of a rethink of what is on my list of must do’s for the next few decades. Programming a good, solid midlife crisis now seems to be a great idea and further postgraduate study has ticked all the boxes to that […]
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.
