This method is a group or workshop based lightly facilitated exercise that creates awareness and understanding of the Cynefin Framework, in a hands on practical way. It uses a set of data points (in Contextualisation methods, these are typically narrative fragments from the actual culture of the host organization or target group) and groups interactively discuss the placement of these onto each Cynefin domain. Many of these data points may be ambiguous or similar. This promotes discussion and group sensemaking. Typically this Method is used as a introductory exercise and a learning and awareness approach, before working with real narrative fragments.
