Professor Mike Yearworth

Systemic problem structuring in engineering organisations

Mike’s research is focused on the development and application of systems approaches for working with complex socio-technical problems. Specific research areas:

  • System Dynamics Modelling: developing Causal Loop Diagrams (CLDs) and System Dynamics Models through group model building with stakeholders 
  • Agent Based Modelling: exploring emergence in complex systems
  • Grounded Systems Modelling: integrating qualitative data analysis methods with systems modelling
  • Developing Problem Structuring Methods (PSMs) for systems practice in engineering
