Not familiar with the Cynefin Framework? The framework has been used in evaluation circles to tackle the complexity inherent in initiatives and populations that evaluators often work with.

More from Cognitive Edge: “The Cynefin┬« framework was developed to help leaders understand their challenges and to make decisions in context. By distinguishing different domains (the subsystems in which we operate), it recognises that our actions need to match the reality we find ourselves in through a process of sense-making. This helps leaders cultivate an awareness of what is really complex and what is not and respond accordingly, so that no energy is wasted in overthinking the routine but they also never try to make the complex fit into standard solutions.”
