Manage Strategic Change
Finding patterns across many stories isn't easy, and it is often misleading. Active Sensemaking automates the process and also ensures that the patterns stay true to the tellers' intentions. 
February 2, 2024 In turbulent and unpredictable situations, alignment is not enough. Individuals need to be free to respond to local intelligence and immediate context. They also need to contribute to the coherent, systemic patterns of culture and productivity. How can communities and organizations offer the greatest individual freedom and maximum coherence? Two principles of Pattern Logic generate coherent sense-making and action-taking for individuals and groups: Generative Vision and Simple Rules. A Generative Vision captures the “what” of an aspirational future, but it also supports local, immediate action to create that future. The HSD vision is an example of such a Generative Vision. Simple Rules, on the other hand, provide the “how” of an emerging future. This workshop explores the theory and practice of these principles across all complex natural and human systems. It presents the power and possibility of the HSD Generative Vision and Simple Rules for our community. Finally, it introduces a year-long exploration into the foundations of HSD and the people and institutions who practice it.

Learning HSD challenges your habits of THOUGHT, while it confirms and expands your patterns of intuition and habits of ACTION . . . and there be Dragons!
December 7, 2023 Three conditions influence the path, speed, and outcome of self-organizing processes. When you see the three conditions, you can understand the current patterns as they emerge at any level of human experience. When you understand the patterns, you can take action to alter the conditions. When you alter the conditions, you shift the pattern as it emerges.  This Live Virtual Workshop is a master class in using the CDE Model to see, understand, and influence the complex contexts in which you work and play.

In today’s complex and fast-moving landscape, we need tools to help us imagine new, unique responses in each new challenge. We hear from clients and participants in our courses that HSD models and methods help them do that.
