I have learned Cynefin from reading, courses and watching many presentations from youTube and Vimeo.

This is a selection of resources that I have found useful:

  1. Children’s party – Cynefin explained by organising a birthday party.
  2. An intro to the Cynefin Framework
  3. Risk and Resilience – A short introduction by Dave Snowden.
  4. Another short intro to Cynefin
  5. The Complex Domain
  6. The Chaos Domain

I generally recommend watching lots of Dave Snowden’s presentations, you will learn something new from each one. Anthony Green maintains a fantastic list of all of Dave’s presentations on youTube. In the meantime, here are some of Dave’s talks to get you started:

  1. Lean Agile Scotland 2013
  2. Lean Agile Scotland 2016
  3. 101 Cynefin
  4. Complexity informed Design Thinking
  5. Cynefin and Kanban
  6. Kanban Russia

Associated with Cynefin is sensemaker. This presentation by Tony Quinlan is an excellent introduction
