An all too brief conversation with Tom Stewart this morning (he was the opening keynote at KM World here in Washington) produced a gem of an idea, namely what poems are appropriate to give an insight into the different cynefin domains. I have long used Robert Frost’s Mending Wall to illustrate complexity. Its evocative use […]

Two hours to get through immigration […]
Another silly survey to test your stress levels and coping mechanisms, from the BBC of all people not the Sun.

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.
