Strategic Modelling to Support Decision Making for the North
UK Chapter of the International System Dynamics Society and THINKLab, University of Salford, Tuesday 22nd October 2019, 15:00 to 17:30 (followed by informal networking)
In a complex world making good decisions is difficult. Creating models, whether qualitative or quantitative, improves our understanding of complex situations enabling us to make better informed decisions. Systems Thinking (ST) and System Dynamics (SD) approaches can be used for qualitative and quantitative modelling. For example, SD can be used to map the cause and effect relationships that drive performance and then project their behaviour over time using computer simulation. The presentations at this event will describe instances where ST and SD based approaches have, and are, being used in the North.

SD meets SD: System Dynamics and Service Design in Public Services
As part of Belfast Design Week, the UK System Dynamics Chapter is getting together with colleagues who work in Service Design to discover what we have in common and learn from each other’s approaches.
What is Networking?
Three or four times a year, the chapter organises networking events where you can meet SD practitioners and members of the policy council. Such events can range from presentations on a single theme, informal gatherings, or partnership with other organisations interested in system dynamics.
