People’s perspectives on an organisation’s past give them a limited view of the present. This has a strong influence on its future. The Future, Backwards method helps to widen these perspectives. The Future Backwards method is one of the primary workshop tools within The #Cynefin Co— and one of the most popular. It was developed initially as an alternative to scenario planning. It’s an effective alternative because it increases the number of perspectives that a group can take, when it comes both to understanding their past and to seeing the range of possible futures. Thus it can be used to:

Dave Snowden: Its always a pleasure to teach in Latin America even with simultaneous translation (and its takes 30% longer to say something in Portugese than English and the Welsh speak English 30% faster as well). I think one of the reasons is that, unlike Anglo-Saxon audiences they are happy to go with the flow and gain understanding over the course of a day rather than demanding something simplistic enough to be understood in the first five minutes. The format Ian set for this was also good. I spent a day and a half training his team in Estuarine Mapping,

It’s day one at KM world in Washington DC and the Cynefin team are off to a flying start with not one, but three workshops! First off, Beth Smith and Ellie Snowden are facilitating a Cynefin favourite, Future Backwards. In this fun method, participants benefit from the oral history of an organisation, from multiple perspectives. Stay tuned to hear more about how the stories collected via our open source capture on experiences of AI have been used to enrich the discussion. Future Backwards Method: https://hubs.la/Q027_Sh40 This is one of the methods included in our Narrative Basecamp training: https://hubs.la/Q027_PbF0

Dave Snowden always emphasises the need for numerous small projects instead of one big project, either focused on resolving immediate issues or changing the substrate or energy gradient of the system. One of his quotes about #complexsystems is, “The only way to scale a #complex system is by decomposition to the lowest level of coherent granularity (LCCG) and then allowing recombination; not repetition or aggregation.” Investing time in reading the following two blog posts by Dave Snowden about Granularity and Anthro-Complexity would be a valuable way to understand these terms: Granularity, abstraction & coherence Series one 👉 https://thecynefin.co/granularity-abstraction-coherence-1-of-2/?utm_source=MBR-FB-DEC&utm_medium=MBR-FB-DEC&utm_campaign=MBR-FB-DEC&utm_id=MBR-FB-DEC Series Two

“Estuarine mapping” The approach overall is based on three key aspects of working with #complex systems and #organizationaldevelopment : 🌟 Initiating and monitoring micro-nudges, lots of small projects rather than one big project, so that success and failure are both (non-ironically) opportunities. 🌟 Understanding where we are and starting journeys with a sense of direction rather than abstract goals. 🌟 Understanding and working with propensities and dispositions, managing both so that the things you desire have a lower energy cost than the things you don’t. It also embodies the principles of the “Vector Theory of Change”. Estuarine mapping also allows
