Prof. Snowden’s work is international in nature and covers government and industry looking at complex issues relating to strategy and organisational decision making. He has pioneered a science based approach to organisations drawing on anthropology, neuroscience and complex adaptive systems theory. He is a popular and passionate keynote speaker on a range of subjects. Among his many accolades, Prof. Snowden is (or has been) an adjunct professor or visiting scholar at several universities, including the University of Pretoria, University of Canberra and Hong Kong Polytechnic University. In 2006 he was a director of funding allocation for the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council in the UK on the subject of emergence. In 2015 he was awarded an honorary professorship in the School of Psychology at Bangor University where he is founder and Director of the Centre for Applied Complexity. While at IBM Prof. Snowden researched the importance of storytelling within organizations, particularly in relation to expressing tacit knowledge. This led him to the creation of a series of methods, practices and software known as Sensemaker®. Prof. Snowden works globally with some of the largest government and private sector institutions in the world.
