Scriptapedia/90-minute workshop sample
Sample of a 90 minute workshop
Problemc, what is known about the problem; type of problem and why; the contribution of CBSD/GMB/SD to solving the problem.
Project Objectives (Explicit and Implicit)
Core Modeling Team
|Discussion with project sponsor||Touching base to reiterate the framing of the problem|
SD Intro/public agenda
|A leads, S as Notetaker
E as photographer
A welcomes and thanks everyone for their presence.
A to go through the public agenda for the next 90 minutes.
A uses the example of the chicken and egg to show system dynamics convention: variables, arrows, polarity.
The chicken and egg share a reinforcing relationship.
The chicken crossing the road narrative can be told to articulate balancing relationships.
|6:15-6:45||Variable elicitation||J leads, E as wallbuilder, A as notetaker
S as photographer
J gives each participant sheets of paper and markers.
J asks "What are the key variables affecting reporting problems to organization X?"
Collect variables after prioritizing.
E places variables on a wall according to general themes
|6:45-6:50||Break||To observe break if time permits.|
|6:50-7:25||Building a CLD with Paper||S leads, J as wallbuilder, E as note taker
A as photographer
With the question "What are the key variables affecting reporting problems to organization X", a main variable forms the basis of the CLD formation.
The main issue would be "reporting rates"
Referring to the variables on the wall, participants can contribute variables and S will clarify what the relationships are.
J to model the relationships on the CLD as participants narrate.
J to then explain the main feedback loops as they occur.
S to clarify the relationships the various variables have and to encourage participants to see further links between the variables.
|7:25-7:30||Closing comments||E facilitates, A as notetaker
J as photographer
E to describe the main takeaways to the group based on the system insights generated.
