Dave Snowden

Director & Founder – The Cynefin Centre 

CSO – The Cynefin Company

Understanding risk under conditions of inherent uncertainty

In this presentation he will draw on the EU field guide to example questions how we measure and manage risk under conditions of inherent uncertainty where our predictive capacity is limited. He will explore key ideas from the field guide, including the use of human sensor networks for weak signal detection and the generation of anticipatory triggers to draw human attention to outliers that they would normally ignore.

Snowden is the founder of one of the five schools of sense-making, and takes an approach which draws heavily on natural science, in particular complex adaptive systems theory, cognitive neuroscience and the biological end of anthropology. He is the creator of the Cynefin framework and lead author of the recently published EU Field Guide to managing complexity (and chaos). He is the author of Complex Acts of Knowing which is in the top ten of cited papers in knowledge management and is a visiting Chair at the Centre of Systems Studies at the University of Hull.

Prof. Dr. Susanne Durst

Professor of Management, Department of Business Administration, Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia)

Don’t forget the knowledge risks in conjunction with the green transformation

Research on knowledge risks, their consequences and potential ways of handling them is underdeveloped in general. Consequently, an understanding of its link with green transformation is missing too. Taking into account the emerging need for a green transformation, the keynote introduces knowledge risks from the perspective of green transformation and provides some possible solutions of handling those risks in organizations.

Susanne Durst is a Full Professor of Entrepreneurship at Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia, and Full Professor of Business Administration at the University of Skovde, Sweden. She holds a doctorate in Economics from Paris-Sud University, France. Her research interests include small business management, knowledge (risk) management, responsible digitalization and sustainable business development. She has been conducting several national and international research projects on knowledge (risk) management, SME business transfers, innovation management and learning. Her work has been recognised through different awards, including an Emerald Literati Award in 2020, and has been published in international peer-reviewed journals. Before joining academia, she worked with private organizations of different sizes and industries.
