Leadership & Management | Integrate Cynefin and complexity based approaches into workplace


While Agile practitioners value simplicity, most of their organizations struggle to maximize the amount of work not done as business environments and product ecosystems become increasingly complex and unpredictable. Many organizations have decided to adopt Agile to become more responsive to changing and uncertain conditions. However, these organizations need more than a set of recipes or ‘best practices’ to fundamentally transform their culture. This Masterclass focuses on applying Agile principles in a truly agile manner, applying principles of complexity and sense-making to understand how to apply these concepts for Agile development and scale-up.


  • An introduction to Complexity Thinking – and its implications for leadership & management
  • Cynefin – emerging, contextualizing and applying Cynefin
  • Leverage emergence to increase innovation, cross-silo knowledge transfer, and employee onboarding
  • Stimulate beneficial self-organization within managed constraints
  • Heuristics and self-organising teams

Learning Objectives

Tackle some of the most challenging impediments: How do we scale Agile? How do we amplify and spread an Agile culture across the organization?

How do we measure culture change? How do we set up change initiatives for success?

The Cynefin Framework helps teams work effectively, improve decision making, and adapt management styles across different environments with various degrees of uncertainty and complexity. While most Agile practitioners know how approaches like Scrum and Kanban work, Cynefin explains why these methods and principles work well. The Cynefin Framework helps Agile practitioners to effectively select, adapt, and deploy methods and practices for different situations.

Cynefin-informed methods and practices help Agile organizations harness change and complexity for the customer’s competitive advantage and forms the core curriculum of this course.
