Cognitive Design Solutions for a Complex World

At Thicket, we’re finding ways to move from creating change within systems to changing the systems themselves. Our cognitive mapping and modeling tools examine how people feel, think, and behave to build a rich understanding of a complex system.

In 2014, we built The Possibility Engine, a custom social system mapping and modeling engine. The Possibility Engine powers our ability to map social systems and deliver solutions at scale. We focus on delivering solutions in three areas: research & planning, dialogue & design, and monitoring & evaluation.

Together, Thicket & The Possibility Engine present a cognitive approach to understanding, designing, and evaluating complex social systems. From ideas to impact, we’re paving the way for more inclusive systems.
