Cynefin is used to designate a naturalising sense-making framework, developed by David Snowden and his collaborators. The Cynefin framework draws on research into complex adaptive systems theory, cognitive science, Anthropology and narrative patterns, as well as evolutionary psychology. It "explores the relationship between man, experience and context"[1] and proposes new approaches to communication, decision-making, policy-making and knowledge management in complex social environments.
