Sense Sharing

Gigamaps are about more than just mapping out facts, entities and relations. They are also about sharing a sense of the complexity. If the members on a team have a diverging sense of the complexity of the task, then this is a problem. The person who thinks it is a simple task will allocate far fewer resources to the project than the person who thinks it is very complex task. Aligning and making sense of such overall conceptions of a task we call sense sharing.

There are other types of sense sharing, including the sense of needed effort, sense of resistance to the project, sense of time needed and so forth.

Read more about Gigamapping as sense sharing in the working paper from RSD4 2015 below.

A full version of this paper, where the arguments are substantially developed will be published in a Springer Book on Systemic Design soon (Editor Peter Jones)
