Dedicated to Building Shared Understanding of Wicked Problems

What is a Designated Partner?
Issue and Dialogue Mapping are highly effective tools used to work through complex and Wicked Problems. When used effectively, they allow for shared understanding of a problem so that collaboration, robust decision making and forward movement can occur.
Designated Partners of CogNexus are organizations who have been trained in – and have a substantial grasp on – both the theory and practice of Issue and Dialogue Mapping. They use Issue and Dialogue Mapping as a regular part of their services at a standard that CogNexus wholeheartedly endorses.
We also are in a collaborative relationship with our Designated Partners. We work together to “spread the word” about using Issue and Dialogue Mapping to solve complex and Wicked Problems.
