Greetings from New Hampshire!
Just this morning there were flurries descending from the New England skies. Although winter is approaching quickly here, I am looking forward to a webinar series I’ll soon deliver in partnership with isee systems. In fact, I’m more excited about Building Products with Impact than any webinar I have facilitated…and there are many reasons.
First, I’ll be co-presenting with some amazing colleagues (and friends) who have several combined decades successfully applying systems thinking tools to facilitate strategic learning and performance improvement. My colleagues and I will show you how tools and resources you can create with the STELLA/iThink software have been used to build the strategic understanding needed to create dramatic improvement in diverse fields: health, education, environmental policy, as well as multiple business sectors. You’ll learn from practitioners at health and educational policy centers, business schools, and universities. You’ll learn how these tools have even been used by legislators to better understand public policy. Follow the link at the end of this email to learn more about some of my amazing co-presenters and some of the topics we’ll discuss.
Second, most people only have limited experience with one type of systems thinking tool or resource: a systems map, a management flight simulator, or a game. In this series, you’ll see the full range of tools and resources you can create – and get a much more comprehensive understanding of what you can do with STELLA/iThink.
You’ll learn how to use STELLA/iThink to create effective:
- Systems Thinking Maps
- Management Flight Simulators and Dashboards
- Learning Laboratories
- And more!
But the most important reason to attend this webinar may be how it will help expand your understanding of the many reasons why using systems thinking tools and resources can help you achieve fundamental improvement – in understanding and impact. And by understanding the many reasons why, you’ll be in a better position to choose how you’ll use STELLA/iThink.
We’ll not only show you the above, but provide tips and techniques for achieving maximum success. You’ll also learn what not to do. And we’ll provide opportunities for you to learn from other participants. The range of experience we’ll bring together from multiple disciplines will be a unique benefit of attending this webinar.
If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. And if you can think of others who might also have an interest in this webinar, please pass this email along. The more participants, the more experience we’ll be able to bring to the sessions. I wish you well!
