"The system thinking and dynamic assignment:
I just want to explain how the assignment should be answered.
the assignment contain maximum of 4 pages.
each page must contain 1 example
the examples must have the following:
1. Provide real-life example (it should be an original one, not one of the examples from the book or class notes).
2. Create the archetype diagram using Vensim (include polarities and loop types, i.e. balancing or reinforcing).
3. Describe the archetype story, the behaviour over time produced by the archetype and principles for managing the archetype behaviour.
the lecture explained the following:
- Essentially you need to describe an issue or situation, and then describe how it fits a particular system archetype
- Then show and describe the archetype CLD
- describe its behaviour over time with respect to the issue you are looking at (preferably using a graph to aid your explanation)
- and then describe how you would manage the archetype to alleviate the problems caused by it (these are the management principles).
- You need to provide examples for 4 different archetypes.
- (Don’t put two examples of a limits to success archetype in your assignment, for example)
- try and make your examples as real-life as possible.
- Avoid using abstract or theoretical examples."
