THE MIT SLOAN SCHOOL EXECUTIVE SERIES ON MANAGEMENT & TECHNOLOGY: SYSTEM DYNAMICS FOR SENIOR MANAGERS
This two-day program for senior technical and general managers is intended to help you: rethink the logic of cause and effect in complex organizational environments; identify, track and understand complex situations and the dynamics they produce; design policies that are more likely to eliminate ongoing problems and create high performance; and make strategic decisions that result in outcomes which are consistent with your overall objectives. You will learn to recognize common business system archetypes--dynamic phenomena that occur repeatedly in diverse settings--that can be used as a springboard for diagnosing problems. You will also be exposed to a range of management tools that can be used to identify causal relationships, as well as high-leverage interventions that will allow you to create fundamental changes.
