Slides and commentary from conferences Tony Quinlan and the Narrate team have attended and spoken at.

A whistle-stop hour-long session saw us sense-making – gathering about 80 experiences from people and signifying them on the walls (see the photos below), then visiting the Cynefin framework and talking about the implications of complex systems for […]
It’s been long overdue, but I was reminded the other day that in November 2017, I presented at the annual conference for the American Evaluation Association in Washington DC on our use of SenseMaker for UNDP Jordan. [For sensitivity reasons (the project was not yet complete at that point) I couldn’t post his slides from […]

As promised, here are the slides from last week’s presentation at the Partnership for Peace base in Ankara. The usual caveats apply – I’m not sure how much sense these make without my discussion over the top… Download 001 StratCom narrative presentation – March 2015
A great morning at QCon in London today – speaking on using SenseMaker® to understand user requirements better.

Last week saw the last Cynefin and Sense-Making (CSM) courses of the year, Dave and I sharing the presenting/facilitating duties. A full room of different backgrounds and nationalities, which kept everything interesting – lessons and applications getting swapped across sectors and countries. Following up is always a challenge – so much intense material often needs […]
