Sophisticated sensemaking and decision support made simple.

Sensemaking is an elegant, subtle, and richly descriptive body of thinking about how humans perceive things. How we develop knowledge. How we interact.

It has tremendous implication for how we design and manage organizations. How we design and manage teams. How we design and manage products and services. And now it’s more accessible than ever!

Sensors

It’s easy to set up and customize your sensemaking effort. It typically starts with creating a Sensor—a unique story and data collecting instrument. The type of questions you can incorporate into a Sensor include: prompts, infographics, ternaries, sliders, marbles, multi-choice questions (MCQs), and demographics.

Respondent Pools

Spryng enables two types of Collections: those to which you invite specific respondents (open collections) and those you wish to direct to a particular group of respondents based on specific demographics (panel collections). Spryng provides a variety of ways to create and organize User Pools and Panels to easily manage to your needs.

Analysis

Whether your Collection is ongoing or fully completed, Spryng makes it easy to view results and filter them against your multi-choice questions and demographics. You can even create live dashboards where others can review and comment.

Sprying also makes it easy to run analytics against your data and take insights to the next level by visualizing otherwise hard-to-detect patterns through:
- Probability density plots
- Line
- 3D
- Heatmaps

FAQ

What is Spryng.io?

Spryng.io is both a software platform and network of expert practitioners. It’s mission is to simplify the process of employing modern sensemaking techniques and leveraging the insights they provide to deliver real-time decision-support across a variety of contexts.

 

As a platform, Spryng.io serves two types of users:

 

  • Organizations seeking to make better sense of (and to make better decisions within) the environments in which they operate; and
  • Expert practitioners engaged by these organizations who undertake the design of sensemaking programs and aid in the ongoing analysis of data acquired from them.

 

Spryng’s core engine is a basic sensemaking application that simplifies and supports the design, collection and analysis of sensemaking programs. More significantly, it integrates collaborative interactions before, during and after specific engagements in which sensemaking efforts play a role.

Who should join Spryng.io?

Anyone working in organizational settings looking for a single system where the design, deployment, and management of the distributive elements associated with modern sensemaking approaches can be undertaken, and that also provides multiple analytical engines to aid in the discovery of meaningful patterns and insights for intelligent decision support.

Why should I join Spryng.io?

  1. Early invitees will be the only members to receive a “Forever Spryng” subscription — a forever free plan to the platform’s core sensemaking capabilities.
  2. Why not? It’s free, secure, continuously available and even includes a minimum defined level of technical support (paid options available for more robust service level agreements).
  3. Users are NEVER locked in.  Download your collections data anytime and for any reason.

How can I get invited?

There are currently two ways to get an invite:

 

  • Request an invitation by signing up at our website: https://sprying.io
  • Receive an invitation from an approved invitee.

 

Invitations are restricted to e-mail addresses associated with verifiable business domains (accounts with gmail, outlook, and other free services will not be eligible) and subject to approval. There is also a limit of two Spryng Forever plans per business domain.

Who is behind Spryng.io?

Spryng.io was launched by Code Genesys LLC following its unsuccessful effort to merge with Cognitive Edge in 2018. It has partnered with seasoned practitioners and thought leaders in the fields of anthro-complexity and management science to round out the initial leadership team.

 

WIth a proven ability to execute (demonstrated by its work behind other software and services platforms it has created), Code Genesys is is excited to be working with a new set of partners through Spryng, and everyone at Spryng is excited about collectively pursuing our mission to deliver powerful knowledge-discovery and decision-making capabilities to the world.

Who created the software services?

The best way to answer this question is to share a little of the history behind how we got here.

 

Code Genesys and Cognitive Edge joined forces in early 2018 because our respective visions and capabilities meshed together quite nicely.  The companies began their journey by focusing initial software development efforts on a new product to be called “MassSense.” MassSense was essentially intended to make pre-structured sensemaking programs available for quick implementation. It was not anticipated to expose custom design or analysis capabilities to users.

 

Cognitive Edge personnel participated in articulating specific capabilities it believed were relevant to the potential marketplace for the MassSense product. Cognitive Edge exposed source code from its SenseMaker(TM) application so the Code Genesys development team could assess whether any components of that existing product could be used to accelerate development.  Unfortunately, no elements proved viable to re-use, and work on the prototype proceeded from the ground up.

 

In parallel with the Code Genesys development team building the capabilities prioritized for MassSense, members interacted with multiple practitioners in the anthro-complexity community. These individuals lent significant experience, insight, and direction to identifying what real practitioners valued as sensemaking capabilities. These sessions were directly relevant to developing an architecture that supported our broader vision — a vision we shared with Cognitive Edge.  Ironically, while Cognitive Edge was helpful in facilitating interactions with other experts, Code Genesys was not having much success in garnering direct contributions from their primary partner.

 

After several months of effectively operating as a combined company, and to the disappointment of Code Genesys, Cognitive Edge withdrew from their commitment to merge the two organizations. This decision gave rise to a host of issues which both parties are making efforts to resolve.

 

Code Genesys and all of Spryng.io wish Cognitive Edge well in their future direction.  We appreciate their contributions to complexity science and sensemaking, but we are also mindful of distinguishing between know-how that is proprietary and know-how that is well within the public domain.  

 

Spryng.io is not MassSense.  Spryng.io is not Cognitive Edge’s SenseMaker(TM) application. Spryng.io is like SenseMaker(TM) in that it supports the design, collection and analysis elements of sensemaking processes, just like Apple’s Pages and Microsoft’s Word both support document design and creation.

 

At the end of the day, Spryng.io was architected and developed solely by the Code Genesys development team, with benefit of significant input from many members of the broader anthro-complexity community.  And its continuing enhancements will be produced in this same, collaborative fashion. 

Are there any intellectual property risks to users of Spryng.io?

In a word: no.

 

The collection of narratives, the interpretation of narratives, the analysis of these things, and what you choose to do with them are all common elements of various sensemaking processes. There are different schools of thought as to how you do things within each of these elements, and the creators of specific frameworks like Cognitive Edge espouse certain approaches over others.

 

As a platform, Spryng.io doesn’t enforce a particular “how” in approaching any elements of sensemaking processes.  We believe such choices are best driven by context. As Spryng.io embeds more AI and machine learning into the platform, however, we do anticipate it being able to guide users on various choices and approaches.  And in this regard, we look forward to making it easy for players like Cognitive Edge to promote and sell capabilities as embedded components of the Sprying.io platform.
