About the talk

Session 1: The role of System Dynamics in Project Management

A new approach to modelling and understanding projects is emerging, based on system dynamics. System dynamics assumes a holistic view of the organisation focusing on the behavioural trends of projects and their relation with managerial strategies. The system dynamics model of a project aims to capture all the major feedback processes responsible for the system behaviour. The project management process is put into a wider context which includes many soft factors often external to the project work, with a strong focus on human factors which often appear to dominate the feedback structures.

About the presenter: Milica Marinkovic works as a consultant in Bouvet in Bergen and has an international Ph.D. Program in Model based Public Planning, Policy Design and Management, as well as two master degrees, in System Dynamics and in Business Administration.

The presentation will be held in English.
