About This Course

Breaking down complex problems into constituent elements is often the accepted method of handling of complex assignments and questions. However, engaging in such deconstruction often blurs the problem’s larger context. “System Dynamics” is a discipline for seeing wholes, a framework for seeing interrelationships and repeated patterns of events rather than static “snapshots”. It provides a scaffolding of principles, specifically tools and techniques developed in recent years, and is a discipline that seeks to discover the roots of complexity, thus enabling a perception capable of discerning potential significant improvements possible with a minimum of effort. It offers a language that expands, changes, and reshapes ordinary ways of thinking regarding complex issues.
