Dealing with Complexity and Coping with Increasing Market Dynamics have become major challenges for Managers and Decision Makers

Making Decisions in such a Complex Web of Interactions

  • Do we get it right?

    • Do we make good policy and investment decisions?

    • Are we aware of the unintended consequences of our decisions?

    • Are we effective in our cross-sectoral communication and collaboration to deal with the multi-dimensional nature of complex problems?

    • Do we go for quick fixes because it is easier to treat the symptoms?

  • Politicians, business managers and all members of society have to make important decisions on a daily basis in the complex web in which business, social issues, finance and economics, environment, politics and culture are all highly interconnected


  • Do we urgently need new and innovative ways of thinking and a fresh approach and tools to deal with the problems facing our society?

  • Creating a “new way of thinking” in society is highly difficult

  • Starting with the Young

  • has been identified as a major leverage point to address this difficult problem and gaming is part of the culture or language that talks to young people.

  • Ecopolicy

  • A cybernetics simulation game that introduces young people to the concepts of systems and interconnected thinking.
