Systems Thinking and the Art of Simplification

If all models are wrong, but some are useful, what makes for a good model?

We will look at modelling from a Systems Thinking perspective, with a particular focus on the art of simplification.

Einstein said “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.” In modelling terms, we are looking for techniques to help tame complexity.

Sometimes, to find the nub of the issue, other times to find new ways of looking at your system.

This is an interactive session, with brain teasers and puzzles used to challenge people's thinking.
