Online Analytics: Bringing the Power of System Dynamics within Reach

Elections results can be hard to predict, but the implications of demographic changes can be visualized to help understand the dynamics of the electorate. Business decisions can have unexpected consequences, but those possibilities can be safely explored and taught using a thoughtfully constructed learning environment.

In this webinar Michael Bean will present LatinoVoteMap, a tool used in the 2012 presidential election along with a number of online simulators developed for business education and published by Harvard Business Review. These interactive tools provide the insights and understanding that come from long hours of modeling and analysis to people without the requisite technical expertise quickly and effectively. Michael will outline the design principles necessary to make world class simulators that many people can use.

Widespread acceptance requires that simulations be easily understandable, convenient to access, and enjoyable to use. The assumptions people change need to matter and the results shown have to be important. With this in place, stakeholders can go beyond listening to experts and filtering prebuilt scenarios to making policy interventions and exploring the results.

This webinar is the eighth in the Big Data, System Dynamics, and XMILE webinar series jointly sponsored by IBM, isee systems, the OASIS XMILE Technical Committee, Forio, System Dynamics Society, and Ventana Systems. The series showcases exemplar applications of System Dynamics in the areas of environment, business, health care, and public policy and discuss new opportunities that will be available as the XMILE standard is adopted.
