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:
Short- vs Long-term effects
Chain of reactions
major forces that can affect key outcomes
Identify and quantify
consequences in the short- and long-term, years or decades into the future
pros and cons of various options
reactions of all affected parties, and the reactions to those reactions
unexpected consequences not previously considered or intended
reactions (good or bad) that build upon themselves in reinforcing effects (vicious and virtuous cycles) or balance out
Corporations, philantropies, and governments all over the world are using System Dynamics to increase profit, better serve communities, and implement long-lasting change
