Teams are becoming more and more complex in today’s product development world. This is due to a lot of influences like distributed teams, different capability levels, past work experiences of the team members, leaders who provide direction to the teams, complex client requirements that change very often and many more

Hence it becomes very important to understand what type of teams we are working with so that we can provide the right leadership for the teams to work at their optimum levels and at the same time enjoy their work.

The Cynefin framework provides a new dimension to the current contexts that helps in explaining what type of team we are working with and / or solutions that we can apply to help the teams to build better products. It draws on research into complex adaptive systems theory, cognitive science, anthropology, and narrative patterns, as well as evolutionary psychology, to describe problems, situations, and systems. It not only explores the relationship between people, experience, and context but also proposes new approaches to communication, decision-making, policy-making, and knowledge management in complex social environments.
