System Dynamics

Enterprise transformation requires adaptability of services in accordance with the dynamism in their ecosystem. The most notable characteristic of agile enterprises is the ability of dynamic decision-making. To achieve this, enterprises need to develop a digital infrastructure, providing the means for quickly getting valuable information to the people who need it. New scalable service delivery platforms, such as cloud computing, Internet of Things, the expanding utilization of data capture and sensing technologies, are some examples that demand now more than ever new ways for dealing with agility, adjustment and alignment, properties that give rise to systemic interconnectivity. 

This interconnectivity demands for a methodological approach that is capable to deal with dynamic complexity of systems in order to understand the implications of their interconnected components.

IDIR deploys the well-established approach of System Dynamics that enables one to examine a system’s behaviour to understand how a change in one part of the system can propagate to all other parts and to visualise any unanticipated impact. Using visual languages, underpinned by mathematical theory, we develop models that are subjected to simulation and thus develop scenarios to encourage group brainstorming through which participants could focus on alternative solutions and to envision potential behaviour of the system prior to its implementation.
