Key teachers resources

We aim to provide teachers with sufficient material to be able to teach the strategy dynamics approach, whether by introducing elements into existing classes, using a business simulation to provide an awareness of the ideas or going further with a complete course and use of the Sysdea online planning software.

We have a wide range of materials, both free and for cost, that will help in your teaching. A selection of these are as follows:

Agile Strategy Dynamics

We recently recorded a half-day class focused on applying an "Agile" approach to System Dynamics, and this have been edited to provide a series of clips, in 3 parts. The background, a demonstration of the approach and tips on best- use of the approach and software to aid embedding and acceptance. Access to the recordings are via our "Free Resources" page

The slides provided can be used in teaching

The class was led by Kim Warren and recorded at the International System Dynamics Conference in Delft, July 2016.
