Complexity, Leadership, and the Cynefin Framework

The Cynefin Framework is a description of the nature of different situations. And each situation merits a different kind of leadership.

The Cynefin Framework was developed by Dave Snowden and a great introduction is his 2007 Harvard Business Review article, β€˜A Leader’s Framework for Decision Making’, co-written by David J Snowden and Mary E Boone.

The Cynefin Framework divides the situations we encounter into different domains.
1. The Simple Domain
2. Complicated Domain
3. Complex Domain
4. Chaotic Domain
5. Disordered Domain

1. Consider the last two significant problems that you and your team had to deal with. Think about the different aspects of each problem. What domain did each belongs to? (4 MC CPD Points)

There are a vast number of Leadership books – perhaps more than on any other management-related topic. And there is also a huge range represented in different lists of the best. This no-doubt reflects the different contexts for leadership.

So, any recommended reading list of leadership books must be particularly subjective. I have chosen those that made me think, and which are of particular value to managerial leaders: not sportspeople, military leaders, or CEOs. In no particular order:

πŸ“– Leaders Eat Last
πŸ“– Start with Why
πŸ“– Humble Leadership
πŸ“– The Leadership Challenge
πŸ“– The New Leaders
πŸ“– Shackleton’s Way
πŸ“– Why should Anyone be Led by You
πŸ“– The Habit of Excellence
