About the Book

“Let’s do a quick SCAN on this.”

SCAN is a simple yet powerful framework for sensemaking and decision-making, and, recursively, for assessment and review of processes and results of sensemaking and decision-making. It was initially designed for enterprise-architecture and other business needs, but will also be useful in many other areas.

In essence, SCAN is a form of context-space mapping -- a means by which we make sense of a context, and work towards resolving our requirements in that context, by bouncing back and forth between the 'problem-space' and 'solution-space' in a disciplined way.

This ebook is an edited collection of articles from the Tetradian weblog (http://weblog.tetradian.com), on the SCAN framework. This edition includes all weblog-posts on SCAN up to September 2012; there'll be new editions of this ebook from time to time, to incorporate later posts and practical experience.
