Session Description

In this session Martine will run simulations and play small games to experience system dynamics in teams and in other environments (depending on the number of participants, different simulations will be used).

System dynamics have various management applications. They are a potent tool to:

• Teach systems thinking and complexity thinking to people

• Analyse and compare assumptions and mental models about the way things work

• Gain qualitative insight into the workings of a system or the consequences of a decision

• Recognise archetypes of dysfunctional systems in everyday practice
