I spent a lot of time thinking about the last post in this series and there were a few candidates. I did think about the Kennet Valley and the Avebury complex which is where I live, rediscovered cycling and brought up two children; not to mention being one of the founding members of the Village […]
In this penultimate blog in the series, I’ve picked something to represent my journey back to health relayed in a series of posts over the last six years. 2013 was the big year and my first blog post in which I came out on having diabetes explains some of the feelings I had at the time. […]
The first nine posts in this series have been largely personal although I started to explore some of the formative management influences which carried over into the current body of theory and practice which is Cynefin in my sixth post. I’m now moving to the most formative period of my life after IBM purchased DataSciences […]
There was little doubt that the Arm’s Park would be on this list. The shrine of Welsh Rugby over the years and the home of both the Regional side, the Cardiff Blues and Cardiff from the supporting league. Adjacent to the Millennium Stadium (It has a new same but I refuse to use it, […]

The Lockeridge gin lake now extends to several cupboards and can be traced to […]
This is the second and last post with a religious theme to it. Both cover the period during and after University where it was a large part of my life. In the second year at University, I was a delegate to a meeting of the Student Christian Movement. The SCM at that time was very different […]
In 1972 I went up to University to read Philosophy and Physics. it was a bit an indulgence at the time but has proved more than useful in later life. They are of course the foundation disciplines in the Humanities and Sciences, whatever the mathematicians say. It was a period where you could indulge […]
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.
