why system dynamics ?

Decision-making in a VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) is hard. System Dynamics helps you to develop a smart strategy by enabling you to identify, structure, and provide solutions to problems that need to take into account:

Holistic view

Short- vs Long-term effects

Tradeoffs

Chain of reactions

Unintended consequences

Feedback effects

Integrate
major forces that can affect key outcomes

Identify and quantify
consequences in the short- and long-term, years or decades into the future

Explore
pros and cons of various options

Spot
reactions of all affected parties, and the reactions to those reactions

Discover
unexpected consequences not previously considered or intended

Recognize
reactions (good or bad) that build upon themselves in reinforcing effects (vicious and virtuous cycles) or balance out
