Episode 23 - Featuring Gary Wong

Gary Wong podcast


There are 3 basic systems in the real world: complex, chaotic, and order. The first two are natural. As humans, we prefer stability,  certainty, predictability and thus have created an order system by imposing policies, standards, structures, rules, best practices, etc. In this podcast, Gary Wong helps us understand the power of embracing differences when working in complex and ordered systems. The Cynefin Framework is introduced to show that how you make decisions and act depends on the context and the system you currently are in.
