Systemic Analysis

Grundprinzip Ansatz und Prozess

Systemic analysis is a comprehensive method of analysis evaluation and consulting which includes the complexity and dynamics of current situations, crises and challenges and serves for the decision support of high-level personnel and decision-makers acting in global organisations, missions or risk scenarios.

With a holistic approach based on the pragmatic requirements of the organisation, all relevant stakeholders, factors and connections are documented, examined and made understandable and manageable with scientifically founded methods via modern analysis and visualisation formats.

Systemic analysis is optimally tailored to the challenges and requirements of decision-makers and high-level personnel, who have to plan and decide in high uncertainty and complexity scenarios. Systemic analysis is a “best of“ all scientifically founded and pragmatically proven methods and approaches to analyse and manage complex situations, missions and scenarios.

As established and directly applicable capability, systemic analysis supports planning, executing and reinforcement of complex projects:

    • by avoiding severe errors,
    • by pointing out chances and risks in time,
    • via efficient, resource-saving planning and implementing own action patterns in crisis prevention and tackling, in the context of an approach across sectors and stakeholders to meet complex challenges.

    Our expertise:

      • Support of a holistic analysis and approach
      • Integrated approaches and procedures of various scientific disciplines
      • Visualisation of relevant connections and structures
      • Pragmatic answers to complex questions and problem definitions
      • Pointing out consequences, dynamics and feedback of measures and actions
      • Trend and consequences of own and others' actions
      • Fast simulation of dynamics, action patterns and decisions
      • Creation of risk awareness by identifying potential secondary and subsequent effects
      • Early detection and reduction of risks and negative subsequent costs
      • Basis for coordinated actions across divisions
      • Identification of synergy potentials by pointing out (inter)dependencies
      • Sensitising with regard to chances and limits!

      Systemic analysis is based on the IABG-developed procedural model of Continuous Systemic Analysis proven in various application scenarios:

      • CSA 1- Definition, delimitation & sketch of the problem space
        • Define problem space and objectives
        • Identify major actors and elements
        • Sketch actors’ interests, capabilities & relations
      • CSA 2- Modelling the system (operational environment)
        • Describe actors, elements, relations & interdependencies
        • Select, assess and employ theories and models for validation
      • CSA 3- Analysis and simulation
        • Develop and operationalise different chains of effects and potential courses of action
        • Simulate potential actors’ and system behaviour
      • CSA 4 - Systemic consultancy
