Hexi is a new facilitation tool to enable you to decompose (break down) methods and practices into their lowest level of coherent granularity. The Hexi approach described in the Playbook enables you to explore various combinations of methods, tools, and approaches to find combinations that work in your contextual situation through facilitation in groups workshops, planning, or strategy sessions.

Hexi encourages new thinking in how you can untangle and plan for sticky problems by decomposing and recombining methods, tools, and approaches.

The Playbook Hexies are part of a larger ecosystem being developed by The Cynefin Co
