"Life needs to be uncertain at times if we are to stay alert and alive to different possibilities and perspectives" - dave snowded
"Yesterdays certainty is todays dogma. Hence a need for continuous cultivation of our belief systems (situated in mind & body of individuals and groups). Maintaining a level of uncertainty is critical for the functioning of any system"
@samim: It puzzles me that all popular work management strategies (Agile, Scrum, Cynefin, etc.) don't include even basic insights/habits from mindfulness studies. Why?
@snowden: What ‘insights’ do you think are neglected?
@samim: active state management (meditation) and multimodal rituals (qi-gong) help to operationalise group serendipity in information-rich and attention-poor environments.

Simon’s ant & system #Complexity:
A complex problem often signals a simple solution’s existence because the problem contains all the complexity. A seemingly simple problem may indicate that only complex solutions exist. Be wary of simple problems.

"Complex Adaptive Systems" - Keynote by Dave @Snowded:
"A framework allows you to look at things from different perspectives - a model seeks to represent reality. It is different in typology and taxonomy: A taxonomy forces you to put things into boxes, a typology says look at things from these perspectives" - @snowded
"It's a lot easier to train users to talk to IT people, than to train IT people to understand users" - @snowded
"The intervention was to say if you have 10y experience and somebody with 5y experience signs it off, you can break any rule - provided you documented it. So they created a rule about when rules can be broken. Which is kind of like recognising reality" - @snowded
