Sharing video The Cynefin domains, Pt2, Chaos

God, I love this stuff. Cynefin is just brilliant and these sub domain taxonomies are lush. Only one thing Dave’s not thought through properly … the unexpected-unknown response is not dictatorial, this is a classic misinterpretation. The response does require some centralised command, but it’s not to enforce constraints on the situation. Add constraints to a mess and you get a bigger mess. The actual response is a noise reduction strategy ie chop off the foot to save the leg, or my favourite metaphor “eject the warp core”. Many start-ups come from here, which is why they mostly die quickly.
