Following the successful launch of the initial version of the kit, we have taken onboard feedback from our first clients, streamlining the product and packaging for easier transportation between uses, and passing on material cost savings to our valued Hexi customers.

We have also reviewed the content of each of the Hexes to ensure that the most relevant methods and processes are included. Following user testing, more Hexi cards are in V2 of the kit for better functionality when used with clients or your team.
Highlights of the V2 kit:

  • Expanded Cynefin and sense-making Hexi set now includes dynamics, liminal, Aporia, AIMS, 3As and more
  • Cynefin framework facilitation Hexis for basic Cynefin mapping, 3-points etc. (enough for three groups working in parallel)
  • Includes core Cynefin and SenseMaker® based methods for intervention planning within teams
  • 120 total Hexis in the BasePack (compared to V1 Hexi’s 34)

The Cynefin Co. are the originator of a broad body of methods and tools developed to support groups in their work with complex issues, falling under the umbrella of complex facilitation. These have the grounding in academic theory and the robustness of our clients’ years of use and refinement. This base pack contains the essential Cynefin and SenseMaker® methods we use most often in our work with clients and community groups.

This pack is designed for use in workshops, planning or strategy sessions to take a situation and explore the application of Cynefin Co methods and approaches. Each Hexi has explanatory text and/or a QR link to an open-source wiki containing the current method version and tips and advice.

By pre-ordering the kit, you become a part of a wider community of practitioners worldwide.
