ResponsiveOrg Meetup
Coraggio Group

We are gathering on April 13, 2016 to meet like-minded professionals interested in the future of meaningful work and effective teams.

Our world is increasingly complex, and traditional models for managing organizations, incentivizing workers, and fostering innovation are broken. A movement is growing that embraces openness, experimentation, empowerment, and purpose in the workplace. This movement has many influences, best summed up in the ResponsiveOrg Manifesto:

This event will be informed by attendees. We hope to connect, share ideas, and plan future gatherings based on the interests and enthusiasm of our fellow Portlanders. We’ll also indulge in locally-sourced beer, wine and treats as we ruminate on the meaning of responsive.

Some of the tools and approaches we bring to the table include (but are not limited by):, Agile, LEAN, Holacracy, B Corporations, and Equity & Inclusion initiatives.

Books we’ve been reading include: Smarter Faster Better, Teaming, How Google Works, Creativity Inc., Deep Work, Reinventing Organizations, The Connected Company, and Team of Teams.

Everyone welcome.

Cynefin & Complexity Foundations
through Hotel Rose

In today’s increasingly volatile and uncertain world, there is a need for new ways of making sense of current situations and managing in new and rapidly shifting contexts. Our past practices and approaches are failing us and what had worked reliably during more stable times in the past is unfortunately proving inadequate for the dynamic present. This course introduces concepts which challenge the deeply rooted thinking patterns that have been ingrained by years of conventional thinking.

Take a dive into complexity theory, and the practical implications for operating in a world of inherent uncertainty. Learn about the Cynefin framework – and how to apply it in organisations; how to make better decisions, dependent on the situation; as well as a range of practical methods that you can apply directly in organisations.

What it’s about:

Complexity has become a buzzword for the world we work within - this course provides you with the foundational tools to understand what it means to act and manage in complexity.

Cynefin and Complexity Foundations forms the core component of Cognitive Edge's training offerings. It contributes the basic scaffolds and key components of your sense-making toolkit for working in complex environments.

Who it is for:

This course designed for people who work in constantly-evolving, dynamic situations, dealing daily with uncertainty and risk, and looking for a enhanced compass for building organisations that are both resilient and innovative. Whether you work in an organisation navigating intractable problems, or are a consultant looking to include complexity principles into your practice - or if you are simply complexity-curious - this Foundations class is for you.

What we will cover:

This has been designed as a 2-day session - a combination of deep immersion into the fundamentals of working in complexity, and with the Cynefin framework. This will be substantiated by lots of hands-on methods-based activities, and group-based discussions.

The session will begin with an introduction to complexity, and the natural and human science that sit behind the naturalising tradition in sense-making. Discover and manage the evolutionary potential of the present by increasing situational awareness of the types of systems that we sit within, and how to modulate within complex systems.

The Cynefin framework has subtleties and nuances which are not easily accessible to the casual reader. Building on the basics outlined in the Harvard Business Review article, this 2-day session will help you dig deeper into the uses of the framework, accompanied by facilitated workshop activities and tools.
