Government Real Estate Theory: Complexity, not Chaos, is the Baseline Domain using the Cynefin Framework to Observe Government Real Estate Environments

 Introduction

The purpose of this paper on Government Real Estate Theory (GRET) is to update and revise the theory’s concepts I discussed in my 2017 book titled The Complete Guide to Government Real Estate Leasing, Volume II, with a chapter devoted to the subject titled Chapter 5: Government Real Estate Theory. There are three concepts discussed here which were not included in the 2017 theory, these are 1) complexity is a term to describe GRE as a system or environment that has many moving parts, 2) Complex Domains in GRE as one of the domain’s in the Cynefin Framework for decision making in complex systems, and 3) skill levels for employees working in the government real estate profession need to be revised to address current outcomes in the GRE Scoring Model. I like the Cynefin Framework because of its ability to take a deeper look at the categorizing framework approach to using domains to understand a system or environment. In my studies on this framework, Cynefin regards the problem or domain of the Complex Domain environment from the perspective where the data proceeds the framework. For GRET, in the Complex Domain, the problems proceed the solutions which is perfect timing for where we’re at in today’s global GRE environment.
