Zephyr Learning Session on System Dynamics Applications April 21st

Hi TMIPers!

After a winter hiatus, we are restarting Zephyr Learning Sessions with a great one featuring US DOT Volpe Staff and the public sector staff they engaged with on how to use System Dynamics in their work. Should be awesome!

Hope to see you there – Wednesday April 21st 2021

More info, registration, and a link to view the previous System Dynamics Learning session at:

Flyer attached - feel free to distribute!

Best,

SYSTEM DYNAMICS FOR STRATEGIC PLANNING UNDER TECHNOLOGICAL UNCERTAINTY 

What factors that influence mode shift?

Can we use systems thinking to improve stakeholder engagement?

Hear about U.S. DOT Volpe Center’s collaborations with the Boston Region MPO, Oregon DOT and several MPOs in Oregon to explore how system dynamics techniques might be applied to further inform solutions to transportation planning problems.

Participants will then join us in a facilitated discussion about how systems thinking can improve stakeholder engagement, internal coordination, and modeling practices.

Concepts include:
>> using causal loop diagrams to demonstrate key relationships and facilitate planner/modeler discussion
>> considering behaviors that are traditionally exogenous to travel models
