About

Complexity Explorer Services

Use computational models and advanced analytics to model complex, adaptive systems.
What is it About?

We use visual models, computational models, and advanced analytics to help our customers to explore, redesign and transform the complex systems they are concerned with: 

  • their enterprises and its ecosystem

  • business models and markets

  • organizations and IT systems.

What Are The Next Steps?

There are a number of ways you can get to know us:

  • Join our Business Prototyping Toolkit Meetup, where we regularly talk about how to build and run simulation models using System Dynamics and Agent-based Modeling. Business Prototyping Toolkit

  • Book a computational modeling workshop. Our computational modeling workshops are designed to provide the jump start you need to become a computational modeling expert or to build an internal computation modeling practice. Book a Computational Modeling Workshop

  • Book a complexity exploration lab. The goal of our Complexity Exploration Lab is to build a causal simulation model of your enterprise and its ecosystem, taking a "complex systems approach". Book a Complexity Exploration Lab

  • Our "Business Prototyping" Approach is Collaborative, Agile And Scalable

    Business prototyping is about experimenting with new ideas and strategies in a risk-free environment: to do this, we first build a "prototype" or "enterprise" digital twin" of your enterprise and its ecosystem.

    We then use that prototype to explore the consequences of new business ideas, strategies, and designs before realizing them in practice.

    Because all assumptions are encoded in the model and relevant data can be ingested in near real-time, our prototypes can be used to explore alternative scenarios on the fly and make automated decisions in real-time.

    Business Prototyping Approach EN

    Our approach ensures that all stakeholders are involved right from the beginning: we start small, iterate fast and deliver results quickly.

    Why Business Prototyping is Useful

    Business prototyping is useful because it lets you capture complex situations in their entirety, using the right mix of qualitative and quantitative models. You can then use those models to experiment with new ideas and strategies.

    Introduction to System Dynamics
    Introduction to System Dynamics

    Systems are pervasive – we humans live and work within social systems, and we are constantly creating new technical systems. Systems thinking provides a holistic perspective on reality that sharpens awareness of wholes and of how the parts within those wholes interrelate, System Dynamics provides a concrete set of tools for studying systems.
