Cynefin St Davids Day 2019 (2 of 5)

Dave Snowden

Its more about staying alert and exploiting patterns of possibilities as they start to become visible. Exaptation is something I have blogged on before, most notably in this series of three posts back in 2012 (like 2019 a Grand Slam Year for Wales).

Thinking about design ‘thinking’

Dave Snowden

I’ve been thinking about the whole approach we are adopting to design thinking as the Whistler retreat approaches. I’ve designated this as ‘industrialised’ given IDEO’s latest approach to training and certification.

Liminal Cynefin & ‘control’

Dave Snowden

I always emphasis that Cynefin was designed as a conflict resolution framework as much as for understanding decision making – all aspects of sense-making. Something that MassSense was designed to handle on a near real time basis by shifting to the liminal aspect of the chaotic domain.

Dimensions of difficulty

Clark Quinn

Using our brains for complex pattern matching and decision making is likely better than remembering arbitrary and rote steps. design strategyAs one of the things I talk about, I was exploring the dimensions of difficulty for performance that guide the solutions we should offer.

Unpacking some nuances

Clark Quinn

Similarly, engineering equations about curves could be used for a roller coaster instead of a abstract pattern. Here’s to nuanced design! designIn my book Engaging Learning , I had a suite of elements for both effective education practice and engaging experiences.

solving problems together

Harold Jarche

The challenge for organizational design is to make it easy to move new problems into the knowable space. We can see the the narration of work in small bits that over time become a flow and later patterns emerge. Humans are very good at pattern recognition.

range & inefficiency

Harold Jarche

of our research and education practices are designed for ‘kind’ environments where the rules and parameters are relatively clear. An innovation system should preserve range and inefficiency, concludes the book Range—Why generalists triumph in a specialized world , by David Epstein.

Tools for LXD?

Clark Quinn

How do you use external resources to keep your design on track? We are pattern-matchers and meaning-makers, naturally making up explanations for things that happen. Our cognitive architecture is designed to do this; to help us adapt to the first-level world we evolved in.

learning in complexity and chaos

Harold Jarche

Most of our current work structures are designed to address complicated situations, such as constructing a building, launching a campaign, or designing a piece of equipment.

Templates for good

Clark Quinn

Merriam-Webster defines it as “a gauge, pattern, or mold used as a guide to the form of a piece being made” In terms of software and business, templates are forms with some of the elements already completed. With them, it’s easier to do design.

Pyramid design by I.M. The design is reflected in the reconstruction of the Reichstag , completed in 1999. I remember at the time when it opened being told it was designed this way to reflect openness and transparency - the new values that a reunified Germany would present to the world.

Narrative: paying the piper

Dave Snowden

Those reflections themselves arise from conversation is smaller groups and the whole thing is designed to keep ideas open for as long as possible: avoiding premature convergence.

Does God Exist?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not only created our universe, but sustains it today. When we look at random things, we see patterns in them. Human brains are essentially pattern-recognition devices. So it's no surprise that we recognize patterns.
