Description: This workshop is designed to help professionals to work with the principles of Systems Thinking to develop better strategies and make informed decisions. Many organizations construct spreadsheet models to support their strategic and operational decisions. But auditing, analyzing, understanding and communicating spreadsheets are daunting tasks.
Participants learn about tools and techniques in Systems Thinking for modeling and understanding complexity and apply them into their every day work with spreadsheet models using Exposé. Upon completion, the participants will be able to create and interpret Systems Thinking maps from their spreadsheets to identify reinforcing and balancing processes and high-leverage points. The attendees will also be able to develop models in Exposé capable of generating strategic and operational insights and translate them into the spreadsheet.
The workshop includes components on collaborative strategy development, supply chain management and process improvement.
