Event description

Description

Interpretive Structural Modelling (ISM) is an interactive learning process in which a set of different directly or indirectly related elements is structured into a comprehensive systemic model. The model formed portrays the structure of a complex issue or problem in a carefully designed pattern, presented in graphical and verbal form.

Although a well-established method, ISM training courses are few and far between. This seminar and training session will cover the entire process of creating the models using ISM and MICMAC.
