Estimated cost: R10 001 – R20 000
Field Of Study: Sustainable Development
Department Name: School of Public Leadership


This module will provide participants with an appropriate way of visualising the complex interrelationships between various parts of real-world problems; problems that continually change over time and are resistant to corrective action. The module therefore provides a solid foundation for developing strategies and managing problems for which conventional reductionist ways of thinking are ineffective. The module is subsequently designed to provide the understanding of the following:

What is system dynamics and why use it?
What are the modelling approach / processes?
What are the basic feedback structures?
How does one develop a system dynamics model?
