Warm Data Lab
“Warm Data” is information about the interrelationships that integrate elements of a complex system. It brings the qualitative dynamics of the system to the surface and offers another dimension of understanding to what is learned through quantitative data (cold data). In order to interface with any complex system without disrupting the circuitry of the interdependencies that give it its integrity, we must look at the spread of relationships that make the system robust.
The Warm Data Lab is a unique approach to revealing the relationships that are integral and woven into the complexity of the issues we are working on. This process allows us to see new patterns, new causations, and correspond to them with a much broader comprehension. An important aspect of this process is that no two participants will have the same experience. Each person moves and connects their contextual framings through their own lens, in their own way. If we do not include these principles in our efforts to make changes that will impact the major issues facing humanity, we will continue to confront the same patterns of problems we’ve been encountering for many decades.
If you and your organization are interested in participating in Warm Data Labs to better inform your efforts for social, political, health, economic, educational, environmental, and/or other contexts of concern, please contact me for further information about scheduling a session: info@cultureQs.com.
As a certified Warm Data Lab Facilitator, I host sessions in English or German.
The concept of Warm Data and the process of the Warm Data Lab have been developed by Nora Bateson. Nora is a Filmmaker, writer, educator, lecturer and President of the International Bateson Institute(https://batesoninstitute.org).
