The first video in our modeling using system thinking explained how to use causal diagrams to show a classical issue with purchasing department (depending on other departments to do their work). We used variables to depict departments (and perception) and lines to show causes. The lines create loops that in this case were negative reinforcing loops.
This video discusses the value of Behavior Over Time (BOT) diagrams and how to use them.
In the next video, we will focus on converting causal loops into flow diagrams.
