The above is an attempt at an ‘influence diagram’ for my Systemic Inquiry 2 (S2). I’m not particularly happy with it, as I don’t think I’ve done a good enough job of explaining what’s going on. I also feel like I’ve missed something obvious.
However, the approaches I used in previous posts didn’t quite cut it. For example, this one not only took a long time to make but included ‘things’ (e.g. the DCC website) and not just people:
The one below is my favourite as I think it’s the clearest. However, it’s talking about DCC’s audiences from a communications perspective, rather than the influence that different actors have within the ecosystem:
Given that diagrams are supposed to be snapshots based on a particular observers view of the system, I feel like these three combine to give me a better understanding of what’s going on. Perhaps because I’ve been so involved in this world for the last 13 years, I know that there’s so much more going on. I just don’t want to boil the ocean when, like Daniel Bedingfield, I gotta get thru this.
