Join us Dec 10th for http://qedinsight.com/resources/events/december-webinar/ , a safe-to-fail synchronous experiment in learning how a practice from one area can be useful in another (Cynefin sensemaker). No risk, no reward. Come -- if I fall on my face, you can help me back up again and we'll learn together.  #complexity,  #visualthinking #visualpractice  #

I am interested +Nancy White I have been aware of you as a lovely presence in ds106 but we have not done much together yet. In my research I refer to what you talk about here as Bridging and have found it key to the creative process. I will look into it.

Hi Nancy

I think cynefin is a good way to frame this.

I am coming at this from more of a practitioner perspective though; less interested in systems thinking (which is inevitably a simplification) than in propagating learning from discrete interventions and then finding ways to model, taxonomise and then take to scale.

I am leaning more heavily on the discarded work of Mary Parker Follett, overlaid with experimental design and open innovation principles.

It may come to similar ends, but without the assumptions of engineer -ability or even of perpetual redesign.

My (unfair?) view of cynefin is that it is still a toolset that seeks to do things to people. Is is thus in tension with emergence at a practitioner level.

It's the cultivation of capability that drives me...

Do let me suggest Skype co-ordinates when my laptop
is back from the repairer.

Very interesting stuff.

Yours,
Tim

I ate at Nerone this month on a warm Roman night. Unhurried but friendly service, basic Roman food and reasonable prices. My melone with prosciutto was perfect. The cannelloni was a bit heavy, but Roman pasta always feels heavy to me. The pannacotta with summer berries was DIVINE. I'd go back for that.

After hearing about SAID from a friend (thanks, Romolo) we finally made it last week. 11 of us sat at the big table in the back and tried almost everything on the menu, passing plates, exclaiming, taking photos and of course, eating. The ricotta sformata starter was my favorite, and after that, it was hard to say what was better. It was all fabulous. The chocolates in the front store are also excellent - some of the best I've had in Italy. SAID is a "don't miss!"
