Cynefin, pronounced kuh-nev-in, is a Welsh word that signifies the multiple, intertwined factors in our environment and our experience that influence us (how we think, interpret and act) in ways we can never fully understand.
Cynefin is a Welsh word meaning “haunt”, “habitat”, “acquainted”, “accustomed”, “familiar”. It carries with it a sense of rootedness—temporal, physical, cultural or spiritual. It “describes [a] relationship: the place of your birth and of your upbringing, the environment in which you live and to which you are naturally acclimatised’.
This Fireside chat with Dave and the Welsh contingent of the Cynefin network, will be taking the Cynefin Framework back to its roots, discussing the cultural implications and applications in its homeland.
