93. Cynefin & GTD – Interview With Dann Bleeker Pedersen

You probably read that wrong in your head – it’s pronounced ku-NEV-in (kəˈnɛvɪn) :-)

In this LAST episode before our summer break, Lars talks to Danish longtime GTD’er Dann Bleeker Pedersen about his GTD practice and experience using the Cynefin framework. 

We’ll dive into:

– How Dann uses GTD, both as a father and in his role as Head of TECH in Retail for the fashion company BESTSELLER.

– What the Cynefin framework describes and how it relates to projects

– How the Cynefin framework impacts your projects list and use of the Natural Planning Model

..and much more, including how understanding the framework might help give you even more of a mind like water! Buckle up, there’s a lot of good stuff in this episode :-)
