In today’s increasingly volatile and uncertain world, there is a need  for new ways of making sense of current situations and managing in new and rapidly shifting contexts. Our past practices and approaches are failing us and what had worked reliably during more stable times in the past is unfortunately proving inadequate for the dynamic present. This course challenges the deeply rooted thinking patterns that have been ingrained by years of conventional thinking. Take a dive into complexity theory, and the practical implications for operating in a world of inherent uncertainty.  Learn about the Cynefin framework – and how to apply it in organisations; how to make better decisions, dependent on the situation; cognitive neuroscience – and how it can shape how we build and communicate in organisations. What it’s about: Complexity has become a buzzword for the world we work within - this course provides you with the foundational tools to understand what it means to act and manage in complexity. Cynefin and Complexity Foundations forms the core component of Cognitive Edge's training offerings. It contributes to building the basic scaffolds around which further anthro-complexity (also referred to as “cognitive complexity”) approaches and concepts are constructed, and form a key sense-making toolkit for working in complex environments.  Who it is for: This course designed for people who work in constantly-evolving, dynamic situations, dealing daily with uncertainty and risk, and looking for a enhanced compass for building organisations that are both resilient and innovative. Whether you work in an organisation navigating intractable problems, or are a consultant looking to include complexity principles into your practice - or if you are simply complexity-curious - this Foundations class is for you. What we will cover: This has been designed as a 3-day session - a combination of deep immersion into Anthro-complexity, and introduction to working with the Cynefin framework, to complete the Foundations level sessions. The session will begin with an introduction to complexity, and the natural and human science that sit behind the naturalising tradition of anthro-complexity. Discover and manage the evolutionary potential of the present by increasing situational awareness of the types of systems that we sit within, and how to modulate within complex systems. The Cynefin framework has subtleties and nuances which are not easily accessible to the casual reader. Building on the basics of anthro-complexity, and the Harvard Business Review article, the third day goes deeper into the uses of the framework, accompanied by facilitated workshop activities and tools that have been used in organisations as diverse as the European Commission, multinational telecoms companies and R&D departments of FMCG companies to bring diverse teams together in pursuit of corporate objectives. To see a brochure for this course, click here. NOTE:Cognitive Edge reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule the offered session.  In the event of cancelation or rescheduling, a full refund of course fees will be processed within 10 business days of cancellation or rescheduling notice.  Cancellations by registrants are only permitted with a minimum of 3 weeks notice ahead of course delivery date with refunds provided less a 10% processing fee. Substitutions are permitted at any time as well as rescheduling attendance to an alternate session within a 12 month period.

A throwback to the days of the traveling roadshow, Auspicious Phoenix Productions' Rolling Revue gives new life to the time-honored event. The Rolling Revue pays homage to all the glory of the roadshow — expect 16mm movie projections, slide photo carousels, and practical effects movie magic — brought right to your doorstep. The old and the new collide to present you a truly one of a kind event, featuring movies never to be released or distributed again. Each ticket to the Rolling Revue includes a free drink (beer and wine available at each venue), a souvenir program, and a seat to view five of the finest audiovisual short concept and narrative works from Auspicious Phoenix Productions' 2017 slate of films. Approximate program runtime is 1 hour, with drinks and conversation immediately following. The tour lineup features a robust and diverse collection of visions and narratives from an exciting group of rising independent filmmakers — all of whom are alumni of Boston University’s Cinema and Media Production graduate or undergraduate programs — and spans multiple genres and formats: QUIETUS(dir. Joy Song, Short Concept)A woman embarks on a process of rebirth, unexpectedly finding strength in her past and future selves. BLOOD HIGHWAY(dir. Joseph Dwyer, Action/Horror)Two bikers hell-bent on revenge after a deal goes sour discover a terrifying undead secret in a quaint suburban neighborhood. LADIA(dir. Alvaro Congosto, Contemporary Dance/Choreography)A virtual solo fight where pain, exhaustion and will power become part of an inevitable dance loop. CRANIAC!(dir. Paul Villanova, Sci-fi/Comedy)A young filmmaker discovers a Martian living inside of his brain, leading him down a radioactive path of denial and brain-exploding revenge, projected across the sky for the whole city to see. THE LITERAL LENS(dir. Jim DanDee, Mixed-media documentary travelogue)A diary of a trip through Japan, unlike any other. Presented as meditative interstitial interludes between the other short subjects in the program. For full information on the films in the lineup, please visit: https://www.auspiciousphoenix.com/tour.
