Delta-R with Hal Rabbino

The Delta-R project, 2000-2001, integrated the strategic systems understanding into an online platform for an integrated understanding of the oilfield in hydrocarbon asset valuation.  The project started by developing the software, with the Delta-R software team, that integrated the system dynamics simulation capacity with the strategic systems framework to integrate different elements of the oilfield in one platform, which was then applied with Hal in two settings in Africa and one in Europe.

Initial Project Description

In this 8-minute exploration, Hal provides an overview of this strategic process, its rollout in the field, initial insights, key experiences, and shifts in the participants.

ISC Live Lab Co-investment and Return on Co-investment

Context.  In 2001, we had just published the book Managing from Clarity. We had refined our understanding of strategic systems mapping, and we were actively developing the synthetic analysis method for identifying systemic leverage points.

Co-investment.  In this set of projects with Delta-R, we co-invested our intellectual property of strategic systems thinking and system dynamics simulation, and our financial capital in building a strategic systems simulation platform with Delta-R.

Return on Co-investment.  The return on this co-investment was learning how to integrate strategic systems thinking into a simulator environment of a specific complex environment.
