Society member Peter Lacey will be presenting on ‘System Dynamics in Healthcare’ at the SCiO Open Meeting being held at Manchester Business School on October 16. Peter will provide insights from the use of System Dynamics modelling over a 20 year career in health and social care consultancy. He will provide people with a walk through of some existing models and explore some of the pitfalls and benefits of the approach. There will be an opportunity to explore both quantitative and qualitative elements of systems and how they feature in SD modelling against a background of the culture and expectations of the health and care system today.
SCiO is a group for systems practitioners and is based in the UK, but has members internationally. It is focused primarily on systems practice and practitioners rather than on pure theory and on systems practice as applied to issues of organisation.
The open meeting costs £20 to attend, and also includes the following presentations:
- Portia Light – Fake art, bad science and what we can learn from using systems thinking to examine the mechanics of law
- Steve Whitla – Making more meaningful models: A hands-on guide
- Benjamin Taylor – Meta-contextuality through the medium of Bongard games: why methods and practices depend on context
