Core Modeling Team Planning, Training, and Capacity Building

  • Peter S. Hovmand


This chapter provides an overview of the second phase of community-based system dynamics (CBSD) where the initial core modeling team (CMT) begins the process of designing and planning the group model building workshops with communities. The chapter describes the content of each of the roughly five 2-h meetings needed to plan a group model building workshop with a community and stresses the importance of having a rehearsal for the CMT as a way to both prepare for the workshop and identify potential problems that might arise in the room.
