ecology of knowledge
In uncertain times the number of options, pieces of advice and temptation to panic can be overwhelming.
Complex problems, systems and situations require complex facilitation.
Since 1998, Ron Donaldson has been working with organisations, communities and individuals uncovering insights for decisions and actions in complex situations.
Just imagine being guided on a journey on which you can make sense of ‘WHAT WAS’ and ‘WHAT IS’ such that you can make informed decisions on your journey towards ‘WHAT IF’.
If you have a complex problem, system or situation which you would like to make sense of:
What we Do
Plan and explore ideas and perhaps develop a bid for approval or funding.
Launch or fine tune a new or existing initiative.
Review and reflect on what lessons have been learned.
