Cynefin, Wardley Maps and ORGANIC agility in Stockholm

Workshop by Dave Snowden and Simon Wardley “Navigate uncertainty: Strategy and innovation with Cynefin™ & Wardley Maps” is coming to Stockholm

We live in a whitewater world. Change is rapid, and uncertainty is unavoidable. Leaders need the ability to take their organizations safely through these waters, but the old cliches and tools are no longer useful. Instead, frameworks and approaches that have been developed specifically for the management of uncertainty and complexity are essential. How do we make sense of the world so we can act in it? And how do we find a way to map our challenges onto a real business map that allows us to find our way? Two popular approaches are Dave Snowden’s Cynefin™ Framework and Simon Wardley’s Wardley Maps. Many people have found these useful separately, but increasingly people are exploring the potential synergies, as they both provide valuable sense-making capacity in strategic and operational work across a broad range of applications. Maps, frameworks, methods, and manifestos all have their role and function in organizational strategy and the theory behind it, and understanding the differences and connections between them will be important as we enter times of increasing uncertainty.

We are very happy to have the workshop Navigate uncertainty: Strategy and innovation with Cynefin™ & Wardley Maps in Stockholm, Sweden on October 22-23, 2019.

Dave Snowden and Simon Wardley

This two-day workshop is an opportunity to take part in an event where the two thought leaders will engage in a seminar-style dialogue, which will explore the blending of their ways of thinking, as well as interact with participants to address responses to their real-world challenges. The first masterclass of that type in the UK, in December 2018, was unique in creating novelty out of the interaction of the two approaches. This masterclass will allow this synergy to mature even further, to the benefit of the participants. It promises to be a seminal event.

Participants will build skills for facilitating discussions and promote action-oriented thinking that responds and evolves as conditions change within leadership teams. In this masterclass, we will explore and put into practice the synergies between the Cynefin™ and Wardley Maps. 

To be able to understand how you can put the theory from the workshop into practice, we would like to add the ORGANIC agility® Foundation training as a practical day after the workshop. Becoming a resilient organization and adapting to an agile way of working requires a shift in mindset and culture. For organizational leadership at every level, from strategy design to implementation, this means understanding the challenges the current market environment poses and how best to respond to them. This interactive workshop helps you to, not just understand, but experience how ORGANIC agility can support your organization in dealing with complexity and how to become resilient in a volatile environment – and why that matters. During this day there will be space to ask questions and get an introduction to the ORGANIC agility principles and ways of applying them in your organization. 

We have a special package price for the 3 days of learning. Read all the details and contact sweden-office@agile42.com to know more.
