Dynamic Business Modeling - Core Classes
Two-week Online Course for Teachers and Students

Course Leader: Kim Warren

Enrollment is now closed for this block course. Please see the detailed course page for options..

The course …

This course explains how to create working, quantified models of any enterprise, function or issue, by following our 'agile' modeling process for building a quantified model capable of matching observed business performance. This process discovers the causal relationships between business elements by capturing how each is changing over time, and adds the often simple arithmetical relationships between them. Along the way you will find many parts of the complete model that are useful on their own, for example to capture how and why changing customer-numbers are driving sales, or how hiring, promotion and turnover are driving changes to a workforce.

For more information on the course see the detailed course page.
