Systems Dynamics Modeling
The course introduces to system dynamics models of business policy analysis and forecasting of associated management problems of complex systems. The course covers advanced techniques of policy and strategydevelopment applicaions: system thinking and modeling dynamics of growth and stability, including interaction of human factors with the technology. The tools of increasing power and complexity are offered for student's business and management applications: causal feedback diagrams, technology process graphs, information processing flowcharts, decision scenarios. Students will get hands-on training in systems modeling by STELLA and DYNAMO software languages and perform own case study of real system of technology and/or business development based on Technogenesis approach.
