A short guide to System Dynamics
This guide was produced to help explain System Dynamics modelling to a group of interested stakeholders for a modelling workshop. However, if you have the time I would really recommend reading John Sterman’s textbook for a definitive account:
- Sterman, J.D. (2000). Business dynamics : systems thinking and modeling for a complex world. Boston: Irwin McGraw-Hill.
Otherwise this short paper summarises the key points
- Sterman, J.D. (2001). System dynamics modeling: Tools for learning in a complex world. California Management Review, 43(4), pp. 8-25.
And if neither are available, or time is really short, then try this SD-Introduction-MY-241014 from me.
