The Cynefin Framework: Using the Most Appropriate Problem-Solving Process

The Cynefin Framework: Using the Most Appropriate Problem-Solving Process | AgileMinds | Scoop.it

The most effective leaders understand that problem solving is not a "one-size-fits-all" process. They know that their actions depend on the situation, and they make better decisions by adapting their approach to changing circumstances.

 

But how do you know which approach you should use in a particular situation? And how can you avoid making the wrong decision?

Mike Donahue's curator insight, February 16, 10:19 AM

This framework provides guidance to solving different problems in different ways rather than approaching all problems with the same process. The article provides some simple but clear examples of how to know which situation you're in and how to proceed.

Daniel Egger's curator insight, March 15, 4:00 PM

Cynefim is all about understanding your context. It divides the logic of the present situation in obvious, complicated, complex or chaotic. There exit many possible ways to excel in innovation, futuring and strategy. Still, strategy is often obvious, especially when you link monetary rewards with execution. Innovation was adapted by the market as complicated (sense, analyze and respond). And Futuring is by definition complex, and we can fully understand it only when it arrives. The interesting aspects in that observation is that organizations have to work all three dimensions - obvious, complicated and complex to guarantee sustainable value generation over time. We need integration.

 

However, the categorization of Strategy, Innovation and Futuring represent only their initial states and different methods, methodologies and tools exist to alter their dimension in the Cynefim Model. The Framework is rich, inspiring and most importantly helps you to increase the awareness about the initial situation and what challenges lie ahead.

Traits of Truly Agile Businesses | AgileMinds | Scoop.it

Many organizations, in pursuit of growth, understand the need to be agile in every aspect of their business—from faster decision making to more flexible operations to collaborative ventures. Yet, there is often a gap between that awareness and cohesive action. The Accenture study on agility explores the common characteristics of agile businesses.

Leadership diversity is one of the key factors

Miguel Paul Trijaud Calderón's curator insight, December 23, 2014 4:52 PM

Agile, a cool business model 

The Agile Monks's curator insight, January 14, 3:12 PM

The challenge in getting diverse leadership is that too many companies are afraid to hire creative thinkers who have different ideas on how to express their art, than the existing leaders. To much of the same gets you just the same and less over time. Companies need to hire people with a variety of insights and approaches, including ones that are challenging to the existing patterns and approaches. Additionally, they need to create, mentor and support the concept of Self-Organizing Leaders and empower people and their teams through Radical Honesty. Check out more information here in the future as we The Agile Monks talk about Agile, Lean, Honesty, having a Code/Creed to operate under, and show how Radical Honestly get you AGILE and successful far faster than the just practicing agile concepts.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, May 31, 2014 12:48 PM

The problem with this approach is that we end up throwing away all the good work we did to establish policies, procedures and best practices in favour of an ad hoc, one off solution.  In  a “crisis”, we don’t have time and all our practices get thrown out the window in order to solve the problem as quick as possible.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 25, 2014 3:07 PM

Simple leadership is all about people. When we put people i.e. teachers and students first, we find we ask questions about their "whoness" and not "whatness". It is a little Dr. Seuss-like, but people are not disposable and replaceable widgets in a mechanistic ordering. They come as historical and forming beings, not doings.

 

Simple leadership gets the complexity of putting people first.
