Cynefin® Practitioner Foundations: Melbourne, Australia

In today’s increasingly volatile and uncertain world, there is a need for more effective ways of making sense of situations and managing in new and rapidly shifting contexts. Our past practices and approaches are failing us and what had worked reliably during more stable times is unfortunately proving inadequate for the dynamic present. This course introduces new practices and approaches that effectively integrate agility, resilience, and innovation in organisations for managing under conditions of uncertainty.

Through this in-person session, you will develop hands-on experience in thinking through Cynefin® applications.

This Cynefin® Foundations course will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about the application of the Cynefin® framework, and how to put foundational Cognitive Edge facilitation methods to practice in organisations. You will experience workshop methods facilitated by practitioner instructors experienced in harnessing the ideas and activities covered in Cognitive Edge’s Cynefin® Online Foundations training. This 2-day course is a complement and accompaniment to the online course – providing a blended learning experience.

Access to Cognitive Edge’s Cynefin™ Online Foundations course is included with your fee to this course adding to your learning opportunity.
