In a complex context, what are the options for adaptive, self-regulating processes for direction and goal setting, financial management, resource allocation, decision making, reporting and accountability … without falling back on the engineering-metaphor traditional approaches that are more appropriate in ordered contexts?
Dave Snowden and Bjarte Bogsnes have both been exploring different approaches to leading, organising and managing for decades, but this is the first time they have come together to explore the similarities, differences and potential synergies between their approaches.
Speakers and interweaving themes
- Bjarte Bogsnes, Chairman, Beyond Budgeting Roundtable
Beyond Budgeting encompasses a broad range of organisational mechanisms including target setting, performance evaluation and rewards, and financial management. Asking, what are the management systems and processes appropriate to complex and dynamic environments?
- Dave Snowden, Founder and CSO, Cynefin Co
Dave’s latest work in distributed decision-making and the estuarine framework tackles similar issues, asking how we can model our current reality including constraints and possibilities, set a sense of direction and measure and manage emergent, complex change in a way that includes broader voices?
