David Benjamin is the co-founder of Syntegrity and the chief architect behind its implementation of the Complexity Formula as laid out in his book, Cracking Complexity. David regularly guides leaders and their teams through their application of the formula, helping them get to decisions and action in days, no matter the industry, type of challenge, or nature of the organization. In this capacity, David has become a trusted advisor to Fortune 500 companies and government leaders on how to organize for complexity and find traction in the face of the intractable. He frequently speaks on a wide range of topics related to complexity, effective and efficient problem-solving, and human dynamics in systems. David spends most of the rest of his time and energy on writing, family, long-distance running and cracking cryptic crosswords. David and his wife, Angie, live near Toronto and have three incredibly talented daughters whom he loves equally.

Cracking Complexity

Why is problem-solving and change so hard? Why do very smart and experienced leaders and their organizations continue to flounder in the face of complexity? In this 25-minute talk, David explains that every defining challenge you will face as a leader is a complex challenge. And, when it comes to complexity, conventional thinking, tools, and approaches are a bigger problem than the problems they are meant to solve. He introduces a new and powerful underlying logic and the “better way” to match the pace and intensity of today’s challenges. Contrary to what we’ve been conditioned to expect, solving and change can be incredibly fast and boils down to involving all the right people in the right way so that they very quickly co-develop and co-own great solutions that they will then execute. The narrative is rational, compelling, and laced with real-life stories drawn from nearly two decades of cracking complexity with large organizations across just about every sector.
