Scoping group interventions for suitability in participatory modeling
Paper i proceeding, 2009

Over the past two decades System Dynamics (SD) modeling has been used in strategic thinking, policy testing, and quality improvement work. Many modelers have used SD in participatory group-modeling situations both as a method for fact elicitation and for group learning of the system. Several authors have stated that the modelling process is problematic and especially modelling with multi-professional groups. We conducted a scoping review of the literature on methods for group process work to identify methods that can be useful for the SD field. The article includes a description of several well-accepted methods from other fields for the briefing process at the early stages of a participatory modeling process.
