SenseMaker® Pulses

In our experience of onboarding and training new clients and members, we recognise the need to create SenseMaker tools that are easy to pick up and use, based in grounded research. Pulses give you the opportunity to tap into a human sensor network in your organisation, community or area of work, with pre-designed SenseMaker engagements around diverse topics such as wellbeing, trust in leadership, social justice, and citizen engagement.

The Cynefin Company has created a series of “Pulse” offerings around key topics in each of the programme areas, where the implementation process is guided by our experienced consultants. If you’re new to SenseMaker or looking for something to trial before conducting your own bespoke project or taking out a membership, Pulses are a great way to start! Take a look at our existing Pulses below:

How can places of worship thrive? Exploring congregational growth and vitality. This bespoke SenseMaker® framework has been artisanally designed to help understand the complex reasons behind congregational decline.


Transcendence: Exploring the nature of religious and spiritual experiences, and experiences of the ‘other.’ This SenseMaker® pilot is designed to gather stories about how people might talk about God and/or faith in their lives, and how they might identify with the veridical moments of awe and wonder in the world.
