Abstract for: Elicitation of Mental Models of Dynamic Systems: Do Existing Elicitation Approaches Suffice?

This paper reviews approaches to elicit mental models in general in order to answer the question whether existing approaches to mental model elicitation can be used to elicit mental models of dynamic systems. The latter has recently received attention in research about managerial and organizational cognition. Until today, however, the elicitation of mental models of dynamic systems was not discussed from a conceptual perspective.
