There are four major areas where complications arise in collaborative research: expectations, assumptions, standards and values, and work habits. Topics covered include:

Resource Type: 
Subject: 

This system dynamics-based approach uses “pair-blending of influence diagrams and the development of dynamical models to support focused dialogue”. It involves six “co-evolving activities” summarised in the following guiding questions:

This video describes how a complexity science based toolbox, especially different types of modelling, is used in complex multiple use environments, such as the coastal zones of Australia, to examine different scenarios for sustainable fishing options.

Critical systems heuristics supports boundary critique, which aims to handle boundary judgments systematically and critically. It provides questions in four areas:

Resource Type: 

ICTAM is a step-wise method for bringing qualitative mental models into formal quantitative simulation models.

The Design Exchange provides is a website "where designers and researchers share methods and best practices".

Method categories are:

Fourteen dialogue methods are described to facilitate interactions between, and synthesise knowledge from, experts from a range of disciplines, as well as stakeholders affected by the problem and those in a position to do something about it.

Resource Type: 
Subject: 

Purpose: 

  • To create the right conditions for dialogue

 

Resource Type: 
Subject: 

The Toolbox consists of a series of questions to probe team member views on the practice of science and acts as a stimulus for discussion. Questions cover motivation, methodology, confirmation, objectivity, values and reductionism and emergence.

Resource Type: 

DPMP provides policy advice on responses to illicit drug use, often using models. These include cost-benefit analyses (eg on legalisation of cannabis use), system dynamics models (eg on estimating unmet demand for opioid pharmacotherapy treatment) and agent-based models (eg on policing a street heroin market).
