This presentation offers a consistent metaphor to help the assimilation of the Cynefin Framework and its components consisting of Simple, Complicated, Complex, Chaos and Disorder domains. Understanding the Framework should make it easier to outline a suitable strategy for each domain. Instituting mental order by expressing what is central heralds the most creative works.
This is in accordance with the findings that many valuable innovations are brought about through an ‘order emerging from chaos’ type of principle, without any specific problem to solve being outlined initially. For this reason, aspects of complexity theory have been looked at in addition to the motivational factors that drive innovation where it has not been asked for specifically (http://www.bath.ac.uk/idmrc/themes/projects/cbdo/DT-Project-TRIZComplex.pdf).

Transcript

  • 1. A Creative Metaphor for Complexity Ali Anani, PhD
  • 2. Many people are confused with complexity and shy off from it
  • 3. Strangely, complexity arises from SIMPLE rules. However; people are finding it difficult to grasp
  • 4. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos One easy way of explaining complexity is through the use of Cynefin Framework
  • 5. I believe one reason for experiencing the difficulty in understanding Cynefin is the use of different examples to explain its domains
  • 6. How about finding varieties of the same example to explain it?
  • 7. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos We know which key fits which lock
  • 8. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos We know which key fits which lock We know we have the right keys and locks, but we have to inspect and try to fit each key to its lock
  • 9. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos We know which key fits which lock We know we have the right keys and locks, but we have to inspect and try to fit each key to its lock We aren’t sure which which for a lock, but we watch out for patterns to match them
  • 10. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos We know which key fits which lock We know we have the right keys and locks, but we have to inspect and try to fit each key to its lock We aren’t sure which which for a lock, but we watch out for patterns to match them We have the wrong keys for the locks
  • 11. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos You have the right keys to the lock. The keys are procedures and best practices You have to analyze to find which key for each lock There are repeating patterns for keys and locks which you have to find You have keys and locks that don’t match
  • 12. Imagine if you were in the chaos domain. You have the wrong keys and locks What to do?
  • 13. You have to move out of this situation soonest; else shall go out of control
  • 14. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos The two options available are either to move to simple or complex The two options available are either to move to simple or complex
  • 15. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos We follow this path if we find simple rules embedded in chaos The two options available are either to move to simple or complex
  • 16. Complex Complicated SimpleChaos Mostly, we have to follow this path The two options available are either to move to simple or complex We follow this path if we find simple rules embedded in chaos
  • 17. We need to identify repeating pattern through: Probe-sense- Respond Complex Complicated SimpleChaos Mostly, we have to follow this path The two options available are either to move to simple or complex We follow this path if we find simple rules embedded in chaos
  • 18. Just imagine how best you would identify patterns or new paths so that you fall in the complex domain
  • 19. Do what ants do They diverge to look for new sources of food and then converge once a new path has been identified
  • 20. Look for new ideas till you identify a new path or pattern to help you find the right key for the right lock
  • 21. I hope this presentation helps you find the right key for the right lock
