My client asked me to develop a Theory of Change as a visual summary of a multi-faceted strategy for social change.
I will be showing
a photographic précis of my Master’s Research Project at OCAD University’s GradEx this weekend, May 1-5, 2019. Continue reading
Master’s Research Project, I developed a very large model of a complex system. In so doing, I identified multiple ways to expand or contract the scope and size of a modelling project: breadth, depth, density, detail, evidence and quantification. Continue reading
These photographs were taken in Palo Alto, California, and used in my
Master’s Research Project to illustrate the complexity of social systems:
My Master’s Research Project is now done! It visualizes the causes and effects of poverty with a system model, and visualizes modelling methodology with art photography.
Master’s degree course in Systems Thinking, we did a group assignment to create a giant poster known as a synthesis map about alcoholism in Canada.
Yesterday I placed third in the
Three Minute Thesis public speaking competition at OCAD University. I just started my Master’s Research Project in January, so it was an accomplishment to be able to explain it as follows:
Probably the most useful thing I’ve learned while doing my
Master’s degree is causal loop diagramming, a modelling technique from the Systems Thinking field. Continue reading
Until recently, most of my consulting work has been intended to bring order from chaos. I analyzed the processes and information of large organizations, and applied dozens of modelling techniques to enable automation and integration.
This resource flow map is one of
many diagrams I use to visualize a complex system, so as to find patterns that can be systematically automated and improved. Continue reading
