Product Overview

This note provides an introduction to operational systems thinking using the language of stocks and flows and guided by a scientific method-based mapping process. Operational mental models link explicit cause-and-effect relationships to the dynamics (behaviors over time) that unfold within the system. Such mental models improve students' ability to mentally simulate how different interventions in a system will affect its long-term performance.

Learning Objectives

Provide an introduction to operational systems thinking using the language of stocks and flows and guided by a scientific method-based mapping process.
