Presenter: Dave Snowden, Director & Founder – The Cynefin Centre

Webinar Overview:

The recently published EU Field Guide to managing in complexity (and chaos) represents an important milestone in the shift of the complexity sciences into operational management. Aside from a simple five step approach to dealing with a crisis it also contains a body of pragmatic methods and tools to create a resilient organisation able to deal with rapidly changing and largely un-forecastable events. The guide is based on the Cynefin framework. This presentation will outline a new process for mapping strategic opportunities based on the guide, along with the core steps needed to build a future-fit organisations.
