Event description

Description

An introduction to powerful methods of understanding, representing, and solving complex problems.

No prerequisite. Will be of interest to anyone involved in strategy, management, analysis, improvement, problem-solving.

You may be familiar with systems thinking and mapping tools such as those popularized in the Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge. System dynamics goes beyond the limitations of qualitative diagrams to stock and flow models that can be quantified using computer simulation.

Computer simulation is commonly used in many scientific fields, perhaps the most commonly known being climate change. My interest lies in applying mapping and simulation techniques to non-technical problems in business and nonprofit, in strategy and management, in solving some of the human and social development problems that organizations face internally and externally.

What you will get out of the session: what are complex problems; some systems thinking concepts and tools; an introduction to stock and flow models.

Approach: Low lecture. Focus on applications. Individual and group work. You are encouraged to bring a problem you want to work on.

If you can't attend at this time, and/or would like me to present to your group, please let me know.
