About this Event

Strategic Modelling to Support Decision Making for the North

Tuesday 22nd October 2019, 15:00 to 17:30 (followed by informal networking)

In a complex world making good decisions is difficult. Creating models, whether qualitative or quantitative, improves our understanding of complex situations enabling us to make better informed decisions. Systems Thinking (ST) and System Dynamics (SD) approaches can be used for qualitative and quantitative modelling. For example, SD can be used to map the cause and effect relationships that drive performance and then project their behaviour over time using computer simulation. The presentations at this event will describe instances where ST and SD based approaches have, and are, being used in the North.

Presentations:

• A polycentric pan-Northern economy – modelling economic transformation through transport connections

o Jack Snape, Transport for the North

• Applying System Dynamics to support strategic decision making within the Nuclear Sector

o Dr Siôn Cave, President of the UK Chapter / Decision Analysis Service Ltd

• Whaley Bridge Dam Emergency: How SD can help Decision Makers understand Evacuation Behaviour

o Hisham Tariq, THINKLab

• Public Sector Integration - Understanding and monitoring complex pathways

o Leo Wall, Kasia Noone, Paul Holme (Manchester City Council)
