The last three blog posts provided the core scaffolding for what I have been calling the Estuarine framework (pending getting a proper name for it). I’ve got a lot of work to flesh out the summary I provided in the last post, and also connect it with earlier material including a key post on the […]

New uses for sensors are being created all the time; from marinas using them to increase safety by guiding yachts boats into place to monitoring the flow of taps in public toilets.

From time to time I am invited to speak at The Stoa, a group that got together at the start of the pandemic and has continued since.  Always an interesting group although some of their sessions verge on the esoteric end of new-age fluffy bunnydom.  I did a whole series for them on Naturalising Sense-making […]

I can’t imagine that anyone interested in complexity in organisations will not know the work of Ralph Stacy, or not be saddened to learn of his death earlier this month.  The Complexity & Management Centre, which he founded, at the University of Hertford, published this brief obituary earlier this month and his early history is […]
