In May 2017 I travelled to New York for the Test Leadership Congress. The great attraction was Dave Snowden’s day long Cynefin masterclass. I wrote this short series on Cynefin and software testing with the support of the Committee on Standards and Professional Practices of the Association for Software Testing.
In “Dave Snowden & Cynefin in New York, part 1” I gave an overview of Cynefin and explained why I think it is important, and how it can helpfully shape the way we look at the world and make sense of the problems we face. In “Dave Snowden & Cynefin in New York, part 2” I look at some of the issues raised in Dave’s class and discuss their relevance to development and testing.
