Introducing Narrative Labs

December 10, 2007

I recently recorded a podcast about the Cynefin framework for Narrative Labs in South Africa. It outlines the model, but largely talks about the complex domain and strategies for dealing with complex issues and problems. You can find it along with the slides here and learn how a former meteorologist, an enigmatic maven and a former narrative therapist have formed a new and interesting company that I look forward to working with. Sonja (the meterorologist) has long held the training franchise for Cognitive Edge in Africa and is a former colleague of mine in IBM. AIden and Raymond were never part of Big Blue, but despite, or possible because of that are great guys, good conversationalists and not afraid to have an argument, which is high praise.
