Final day of the Summer School in Copenhagen and I had two sessions to run.  The first over three hours in the morning covered complexity, safe-to-fail interventions followed by a shorted presentation in the afternoon where I picked up on Cynefin and the complex and chaotic domain models.    The latter was a little rushed […]

So foresight week continues in Singapore and we move on to parallel events.  One is on complexity and is in the main academic papers, the other is a Chatham House rules event (so what I can say is limited) on the future of governance.   There are a few of us with a complexity background in […]

While yesterday's closing session at IRAHSS13 was creating on the move today's had more preparation.  On day two I have lived through day one and have a sense of the overall structure of what I want to say to bring the whole event to an end.  The overall theme was knowledge, what we know, what […]
