Dave Snowden

The post Cynefin St David’s Day 2020 (1 of n) appeared first on Cognitive Edge. On St David’s Day last year, I started a five-part series of posts to update the Cynefin Framework, all illustrated by pictures of the mountains of Eryri, or Snowdonia if you want to use the Saxon which derives from Snow Dun, or snow hill. For followers of this blog you will know those mountains are a key part of my own Cynefin; a sense of multiple belongings.

Dave Snowden

The post Cynefin St David’s Day 2020 (2 of n) appeared first on Cognitive Edge In my first post in this series, I talked about the renaming of the disorder domain into A/C (for short) standing for Aporetic or Confused for what used to be called authentic or inauthentic disorder. Now before people get hung up on language, if you are presenting Cynefin for the first time then you are unlikely to use the liminal version and you can just call it confused.

Returning to constraints

Dave Snowden

The more astute reader may have noticed that I have been writing a series of blog posts that update previous work and explore new ways of defining the general field of naturalising sense-making, and more particularly anthro-complexity as a key aspect of that field.

The Social Network Is the Computer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

“Human beings have always been a social species,” writes MIT professor Sinan Aral in the opening paragraph of The Hype Machine , his recently published book. “We’ve been communicating, cooperating, and coordinating with one another since we were hunting and gathering.”

The straw man fallacy

One of the things that most irritates me on social media is the complete ignorance people seem to have of the Straw-man fallacy in logic.

Dave Snowden

In this second post within the knowledge management section, I want to summarise some of the material on human cognition and decision making that I and others rely on within the wider field of sense-making.

Separate content from description

Clark Quinn

Once again facing folks who aren’t using styles, I was triggered to think more deeply about the underlying principle. That is, to separate content from description. It’s a step forward in what we can do with systems to bring about a more powerful human-aligned system.

“… intire of it selfe”

Dave Snowden

A health warning – this is an exploratory post starting to develop an anthro-complexity theory of organisational change. As such I am working through some of the basic science relating to the constraints within which such a theory can be developed. This is Praxis in action!

Mostly harmless

Dave Snowden

I was asked this evening via LinkedIn to comment on the Baldridge Performance Excellence Program and I replied with the title of this post. I’m not sure why I was asked as there is nothing exceptional about it and it has little or no connection with complexity theory.

Measuring Impact (or not)

Clark Quinn

However, the trigger for the post was from the results of Chief Learning Officer 2020 State of Learning report. So I saw a twitter thread pointing to an argument about how ROI is dead. And, well, that’s largely okay with me.

One of the most painful ever scenes for anyone of a progressive mindset is the People’s front of Judea from Monty Pythons Life of Brian which came out in 1979. I think it is my favorite of the Monty Python films.

Dave Snowden

My old headmaster, of fond memory, was too find of appealing for harmony at school assemblies. I think he wanted everything to be like the choir in the banner picture.
