Scoping of complex social and environmental problems can be undertaken using the following seven phase framework.

 

Phase 1: Analyse the Context

Combines system dynamics group modelling and group explorer strategy making to “facilitate the design of multi-method strategy modelling workshops”. Consists of:

The aim of this analysis is to determine “who or what really counts”. Although developed in a business context, the analysis has broader relevance.

Power, legitimacy and urgency are defined as follows:

Subject: 

This tool aims to identify the primary stakeholders, as well as suggesting how best to interact with them. It was developed to influence policy in development settings and is usually conducted as a group process with diverse participants, who have insights into different aspects of the policy and the relevant key players.

This collection of cases illustrates the use of system dynamics in consulting projects in: chemicals, criminal justice, defense and aerospace, economics and finance, education, energy and environment, engineering and construction, health care, production management, multisector planning, public health, technology, transportation, and urban plann

Overview of several high profile system dynamics model-based applications, selected to show what such models look like, how they emerged (often in multidisciplinary interventions), and how they were used successfully to influence strategy, policy, and decision making.

This video of an hour-long workshop introduces the core concepts and patterns of thought of the system dynamics approach to complex problems: thinking dynamically, thinking causally, thinking about accumulations, and the key to it all, thinking endogenously.

Provides a generic model incorporating business growth, personnel transfers, resignations and retirements to calculate training days for different personnel groups. Training includes both new skills and skills maintenance.
