Sensemaking: The Power of the Humanities in the Age of the Algorithm

Christian Madsbjerg

According to wikipedia Sensemaking is the process by which people give meaning to their collective experiences (Laura McNamara gives a more thoughtful definition). This book by Madsbjerg is a great compass for human first thinking in linear, high speed environments. It touches on data (thick, thin), human decision making, priority mechanisms (sprints et al) and leaves us with actionable frames to think differently. Highly recommended.
