Catholic Relief Services [CRS] started piloting SenseMaker® in 2015, and has a wealth of knowledge, experience, and implementation advice that they will be sharing with us. They have travelled the world and worked with people most in need. The journey has not always been easy, but, in the words of Dr Maria Veronica Gottret, Senior […]
I was trying to remember when COVID started to impact me personally and touch wood despite lots of social contacts I either haven’t had it or didn’t notice if I did). Yes, I was aware of it, and that awareness crept up slowly and remorselessly. When it started it felt a little like SARS, not […]
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes” – Marcel Proust In this vast existence, from the movement of a blade of grass to the explosion of galaxies, it is difficult and complex to find a reason or cause for a particular event.

It is 2021, and many of us don’t know quite what that entails. Most were very glad to see the back of 2020, and many colourful, expletive-filled goodbyes were said. As this happened, I and many others reminded ourselves that 2021 will be just as difficult, if not even more demanding. What a moment then […]
I have been thinking a lot about climate change during the COVID-19 times (and so have many many many others). Two things have struck many among us, and have repeatedly been brought up in discussions I have been a part of. The first main theme has been “nature returning”: clearer skies, cleaner waters (or in […]
Three weeks ago, my uncle died from COVID-19. He was a second uncle and I hadn’t seen him in a few years. No one except his father and siblings could go to the funeral. There was no body, no family dinner, no regular memorial services at 3 days and then again at 9 to remind […]
The Cynefin Company (formerly known as Cognitive Edge) was founded in 2005 by Dave Snowden. We believe in praxis and focus on building methods, tools and capability that apply the wisdom from Complex Adaptive Systems theory and other scientific disciplines in social systems. We are the world leader in developing management approaches (in society, government and industry) that empower organisations to absorb uncertainty, detect weak signals to enable sense-making in complex systems, act on the rich data, create resilience and, ultimately, thrive in a complex world.
