I’ve been working on chapter two of the book (yes I know, its been a long time but it is coming) and also doing a whole bunch of reading around complexity to tie in the various references etc. not to mention several really interesting conversations with people I respect in the field. As a result of all that I am thinking of changing some of the domain labels on the Cynefin framework. In part this is because there is considerable confusion in the literature between complexity and chaos, and strictly understood chaos probably never happens in a human system (from the perspective of a scientist). It won’t be the first time; the 2002 article confused ontology with epistemology and to resolve that known and knowable became simple and complicated. So my current thoughts are running along the current lines – and all comments are welcome:
I’ll expand more on the why of this later, but for the moment I am probing for reactions. Either comment here (you all did a good job of collective editing of my elevator pitch )after all! Or email me directly if that is easier.
