History of the SD Society

A History of the System Dynamics Society

As part of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the field of System Dynamics being celebrated in the summer of 2007 in Boston, we intend to create a type of oral history of the founding of the System Dynamics Society (which took place just about 25 years ago). We have asked some people to participate to “get the ball rolling,” but all are welcome to share their stories in this project.*

Thank you. David Andersen, John Morecroft and Roberta Spencer.
