System dynamics is a male-dominated field but has become more diverse in recent years. The System Dynamics Society aims to be inclusive, address sexism and racism, and promote diversity within the global community. This seminar will allow women in the System Dynamics field from different geographical backgrounds and at different career levels to reflect upon their experiences. What do they recognize in each other’s experiences? What advice would they give to students and colleagues? We aim for an open and constructive discussion with all participants!

Applied System Dynamics for Students and Beginners

Free for Members | $25 for non-members.

12 pm New York | 4 pm London | 6 pm Johannesburg | 12 am Beijing

Several guidelines on the System Dynamics modeling process are found in the literature. While these are rigorous, we have experienced challenges in the use of these existing guidelines in practice, especially where implementation based on the modeling results is critical. In this seminar, we will take you through an integrated system dynamics modeling process which is based on the customized process followed by Eskom SOC with specific elements from the Sustainable Development Programme at Stellenbosch University and Dynamic Strategies. We will also cover the do’s and don’ts when it comes to validation and calibration.

When COVID-19 hit almost a year ago, we, a group of researchers at the University of Bergen in Norway, decided to take the leap and run a planned in-person Group Model Building workshop online on fairly short notice. Encouraged by the positive outcomes of this initial event, we have since experimented with several more online activities. In this seminar, we will share our experiences so far, demonstrate some of the online tools and templates that we have been developing, and exchange tips and tricks with seminar participants.
