About the Bundle

The ‘Sensemaking and complexity’ bundle: Methods and tools for sensemaking in EA

How do we make sense of what’s going on, in business and beyond? And how can we best use that sensemaking to guide decisions? This bundle of ebooks from the Tetradian weblog shows you why and how to do sensemaking in enterprise architecture and more.

The bundle includes the following four anthologies:

  • Sensemaking in Enterprise Architecture (33 posts)
  • On complexity and Enterprise Architecture (40 posts)
  • SCAN for sensemaking and decision-making (32 posts)
  • Updates on SCAN sensemaking (32 posts)

Allowing for some overlap between anthologies, the overall bundle includes about 130 articles, adding up to 1372 PDF pages.

About the Books

Sensemaking in enterprise architecture

Methods and disciplines for sensemaking
    • PDF

    • EPUB

    • WEB

    This anthology from the Tetradian weblog provides checklists, models and schemas to guide sensemaking practice for enterprise architecture and a wide range of other related disciplines.

    The book includes about 35 posts and 90 images from the weblog, and is split into three sections:

    • Sensemaking: Making Sense - maps out a range of methods and options for sensemaking in enterprise architecture and beyond.
    • Sensemaking: Metaframeworks - presents guidelines and worked-examples on metaframeworks (frameworks used to create sensemaking-frameworks) for enterprise architecture and more.
    • Sensemaking: Seven Sins - introduces a set of seven common patterns of sensemaking-failure, and their implications in real-world practice.

    On Complexity and Enterprise Architecture

    Making sense of architecture complexities
      • PDF

      • EPUB

      • WEB

      This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores the various forms of complexity that arise in enterprise architecture, and how to work with them.

      This book includes about 40 posts and 95 images from the weblog. These posts are split into four groups:

      • Complexity: Complexity and Chaos - explores core concepts around complexity in business and beyond.
      • Complexity: Complexity and Sensemaking - shows how make sense of complexity in architectures.
      • Complexity: Complexity and Method - introduces methods and practices to tackle complexity.
      • Complexity: Complexity and SCAN - illustrates how to use the SCAN frame to map out, make sense of and take action on complexity.

      SCAN for sensemaking and decision-making

      Making sense in real-world uncertainty
        • PDF

        • EPUB

        • WEB

        This anthology from the Tetradian weblog covers the SCAN model-type and its related uses and modelling methods. SCAN is used to guide sensemaking and decision-making in contexts with varying levels of complexity, uncertainty and uniqueness.

        This is the first of a two-part series, showing the initial SCAN developments and usages up to 2014. The second part in the series, Updates on SCAN sensemaking: New developments for the SCAN model, describes further developments and usages from 2014 onwards.

        This book includes about 35 posts and 55 images from the weblog. These posts are split into four groups:

        • SCAN: Core and Origins - describes the underlying concepts, structures and methods for the core SCAN framework.
        • SCAN: Sensemaking - explores how to use the SCAN frame to support sensemaking.
        • SCAN: Decision-making - illustrates how to use the SCAN frame to support real-world and real-time decision-making.
        • SCAN: Theory and Practice - presents the theory that underpins the SCAN framework, and practical examples of SCAN in use.

        Updates on SCAN sensemaking

        New developments for the SCAN model
          • PDF

          • EPUB

          • WEB

          This anthology from the Tetradian weblog covers the SCAN model-type and its related uses and modelling methods. SCAN is used to guide sensemaking and decision-making in contexts with varying levels of complexity, uncertainty and uniqueness.

          The initial anthology in this set was published in 2014. This 2022 update adds around 35 posts and 125 images, representing new material on SCAN published on the weblog since 2014. These posts are split into three groups:

          • SCAN: Core Extensions - provides new concepts, insights and methods for the core SCAN framework.
          • SCAN: Complexity - explores further work on theory and practice on complexity, and how this relates with the SCAN framework.
          • SCAN: Usage-Examples - presents a range of real-world examples where the SCAN framework helps to explain a concept or concern and is put to practical use.
