We’re running CrowdSensor right now in Singapore – Join in here. We’re looking for everyone’s thoughts on what might happen next. There’s an interesting experiment on micro-scenarios taking place right now at the International Risk Assessment and Horizon Scanning Symposium in Singapore that’s looking for input. It’s gathering international reactions and opinions on what happens […]

One of the common social media comments post a Cognitive Edge course (especially when I run it) is that people'r brains hurt; it's normally a compliment. As I said yesterday on the final day of this week's London programme the issue is to think differently, then its all pretty simple. This is generally true of […]
My last two posts discussed by personal journey, and one which is not yet complete. I'll update that from time to time, especially when I close in on my target weight of 82 kg which I should make when I start the 60@60 Round Wales Walk this February. I now want to move on to […]
Isn't it nice to be nice? To talk only about how things would be so nice. To posit a future where leaders and managers are nice people who believe in nice things and have nice values and beliefs. Its so safe to be nice because no one can really disagree with you. Changing anything in […]

My first formal exposure in change methodologies occurred when I was trained by ODR. Founded by Darryl Conner in 1974, ODR held licenses with the major consulting firms from the mid-80s […]
One of the CE graphics that produced an “Ah-hah!” moment for me was Dave’s S-curve diagram. It wasn’t the first time that I had seen S-curves. At the global consulting firm where I worked, there were plenty of S-curve charts showing industries and firms going through life cycles. My “Ah-hah!” occurred discussing the bubble formed […]
I’m pleased to be invited as a guest blogger! I actually don’t know many of the other insightful bloggers here, which is a shame since there are so many interesting ideas. I stay holed up in East Africa running the GlobalGiving Storytelling Project and doing whatever it takes to turn >13,000 stories into meaningful community […]
A terrible tragedy happened this week in Oslo. A single Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik, possibly acting alone, took the lives of almost 100 people in a singular act of violence. This was the worst act of non-wartime violence in Norway’s history, producing twice the fatalities per capita than September 11th. Our heart goes out […]
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.
