Abstract for: Exploring the Nature of Insight in System Dynamics

This poster explored the concept of system dynamics insights. In system dynamics, the term “insight” is generally understood to mean dynamic insight, that is, a deep understanding about the relationship between structure and behavior. We argue this is only one aspect of the range of insights possible from system dynamics activities, and describe a broader range of potential system dynamics insights. The poster presented at the conference represented ideas in the development stage for which we sought feedback, and this abbreviated paper constitutes an extended abstract of the paper
