Cynefin

Cynefin
The various domains of the Cynefin model. Cynefin /ˈkʌnɨvɪn/ is a Welsh word, which is commonly translated into English as 'habitat' or 'place', although this fails to convey its full meaning. The term was chosen by the Welsh scholar Dave Snowden to describe a perspective on the evolutionary nature of complex systems, including their inherent uncertainty ("The Cynefin framework"). The name serves as a reminder that all human interactions are strongly influenced and frequently determined by our experiences, both through the direct influence of personal experience, as well as through collective experience, such as stories or music. The framework provides a typology of contexts that guides what sort of explanations or solutions might apply. Meaning of the word[edit] A more complete translation of 'cynefin' would convey the sense that we all have multiple pasts of which we can only be partly aware: cultural, religious, geographic, tribal etc. History[edit] Description of the framework[edit] Related:  WOW - Ways of WorkingDiversos

Impact, Outcome and Output As I alluded to in the previous post , one of the changes in thinking, and in particular language, for me recently is the idea of impact . Specifically that impact is different from outcome which is itself different from output. I’ve differentiated outcome from output for some time, as have others, but I believe impact is a further step in understanding how we approach change. To relate the three ideas to each other, I would say that: Outputs create outcomes which have impact. This mapping also ties in nicely to Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle model that I have referenced before . Outputs (or sometimes activities) are the things that we do in order to achieve something. Outcomes are the future state we hope to achieve by completing the outputs. Impacts are the tendencies or dispositions of an outcome. As Simon Sinek recommends with the Golden Circle, we should always Start with Why , and thus when implementing any process or product it is useful to know what impact we want to have.

Content Management in a Knowledge Management Context — Prescient Digital Media - intranet consultant, intranet consulting, intranet planning and Internet planning. During an economic downturn such as the one we are working our way through at the moment (2010), organizations are looking to make the most of their investments in their technological infrastructure, how to squeeze greater efficiencies out of their product development or production processes through automation, and how to leverage their technology to generate efficiencies. These efforts can take different organizations in different directions. For example, if your organization creates physical widgets on a production line, or if your staff are considered ‘knowledge workers’ creating products which are essentially ‘information assets’. Either way ‘knowledge management’ becomes more important in this economic climate. If you have to let people go, how do you ensure that vitally important knowledge does not leave with them? However ‘knowledge management’ means a lot of different things to different people, and indeed is often used interchangeably with Information Management. 1. 2. 3.

| A Unifying Perspective on Information Value Streams are Made of People | Lean Systems Society Note by Al Shalloway: I’m happy to present this blog from Liz Keogh. Liz is one of these out-of-the-box thinkers who somehow manages to connect many disparate dots. Here she deals with value streams, but not in your normal, in-the-box manner. Enjoy. Liz Keogh Independent consultant, Lean / Agile coach and trainer When I was first taught about value streams, they looked a lot like this: The idea is that you look at the different activities through which the work flows, and the gaps between them, then narrow the gaps, because waiting around for things to happen is wasteful. We’re used to thinking of software in terms of phases. As companies get larger, the value streams tend to get more complicated, but we still talk about our software in terms of those original phases. In software development, work is more like product development – designing a new car – than like a production line where we churn the same thing out over and over again. So the development team get their requirements.

Knowledge Management as Educational Science Knowledge Management as Educational Science Our brains naturally function systematically, and if we can learn to teach and learn to this biological strength we can become far more effective. Image provided by Walter Smith. Can we create a science of knowledge management that teachers can use to influence learning? Lowest Common Denominator of Knowledge The human brain is made up of networks of hundreds of billions of interneurons. Our brains are made up of millions of interneuron chain combinations that reflect the actions and interactions of our bodies with the environment. In simple terms, we are what we think we are, and we are all different. Managing Knowledge for Systems Thinking Systems of brain neurons function as complex versions of single brain neurons. Our brains function systematically. Educating to Think Systematically Can we create education systems that enable us to be inherently successful? The articles in this series outline a model for educating for success. Tags: Business

Cynefin framework and software code Recently I read some article about Cynefin framework, it is really inspiring. As the diagram shows, cynefin framework categorize the problems in to 4 domains: simplecomplicatedcomplexchaotic For different domain, the approach and strategy are quite different. Today I would like to analyze the software code using cynefin framework. Which domain does software belong to? In General I will say software belongs to complex domain. complex, in which the relationship between cause and effect can only be perceived in retrospect, but not in advance, the approach is to Probe - Sense - Respond and we can sense emergent practice. Here The probe - sense - Respond is same as TDD and iterative development, since we don't understand the domain, so we have to rely on immediate feedback. We can also conclude that the reason why waterfall does not working is because they assume the problem domain in software is always in simple domain. How about other domains? Why clean code will help reduce the complexity?

Monitoring knowledge (management): an impossible task? « The giraffe It isn’t an impossible task to monitor/evaluate (M&E) intangibles, knowledge or knowledge management (KM), but it requires a series of tough choices in a maze of possibles. This is what Simon Hearn and myself are discovering, trying to summarise, synthesise and build upon the two M&E of KM papers commissioned earlier, as well as the reflective evaluation papers by Chris Mowles. We are still at the stage of struggling very much with how to set the ballpark for our study. So this is a good opportunity to briefly share a blogpost I wrote recently about this very topic, and to share some preliminary thoughts. If we get to engage your views it would certainly help us to get going. In attempting to monitor knowledge and/or knowledge management, one can look at an incredible amount of issues. Among the factors that seem to impact on the design (and later implementation) of M&E of KM, I would identify: Do you have any suggestion about all this? Like this: Like Loading...

Encyclopedia of Philosophy Three Cynefin Ahas Over the last year I’ve been increasingly influenced by ideas from Cynefin , created by Dave Snowden of Cognitive Edge . If you want a good introduction, Liz Keogh recently blogged a good explanation . I’ve realised that there are 3 key changes in my thinking, some completely new, and some reinforced by a better understanding of cognitive complexity. None of these are unique to Cynefin, and Cynefin contains much more. This list is my take, rather than any official list, although if you know Dave’s work I’m sure you’ll recognise a lot of the language! 1. 2 Sense-making . 3. Putting those three ahas together, I can imagine applying them through working with organisations to collect a range of narratives, help make sense of them by contextualising them with Cynefin, and then facilitate the creation of appropriate actions to make an impact on the business.

Information architecture Information architecture (IA) is the structural design of shared information environments; the art and science of organizing and labeling websites, intranets, online communities and software to support usability and findability; and an emerging community of practice focused on bringing principles of design and architecture to the digital landscape.[1] Typically, it involves a model or concept of information which is used and applied to activities that require explicit details of complex information systems. These activities include library systems and database development. Historically the term "information architect" is attributed to Richard Saul Wurman,[2][page needed] and now there is a growing network of active IA specialists who comprise the Information Architecture Institute.[3] Definition[edit] Information architecture has somewhat different meanings in different branches of IS or IT: The structural design of shared information environments.
