9. Sense-making

Skills in seeing patterns, structuring the unknown and being able to consciously create stories

All human beings are continually engaged in making sense of their experiences, in order to be able to function. So in order to regard sense- making as a key skill, we need to focus on the more developed forms of sense-making. These involve actively looking for patterns relevant for the tasks individuals or groups are facing, trying to make sense of those patterns by looking for additional pieces of information, test different possible interpretations, engage in dialogue with other people and thereby arrive at more well-founded understandings. Sense-making has considerable overlap with other parts of the IDG framework, such as Critical thinking, Complexity awareness and Perspective skills.
