Annex 1 of Governance through Patterning Language: creative cognitive engagement contrasted with abdication of responsibility


Introduction
Strategy 1: Denial and positive thinking
Strategy 2: Polarization and demonization
Strategy 3: Pre-emptive / Defensive appeals
Strategy 4: Filtering and gatekeeping -- beyond denial
Strategy 5: Project Logic
Strategy 6: Patterning capacity challenges


Introduction

The intention here is to present a sequence of governance strategies, which continue to be widely used but reflect various forms of inadequacy in response to recognized challenges. The sequence is ordered from those most frequently used and understood through to subtler and more complex strategic patterns. The approach is designed to highlight the need to move beyond cognitive detachment from strategies to one requiring a higher order of cognitive engagement in strategies (as explored in Annex 2: Creative Cognitive Engagement: beyond the limitations of descriptive patterning).
