Table of contents
Birgitte Snabe analyzes how system dynamics modeling can be used in learning processes that focus on the transfer of the insights and reasoning behind a strategy forming process. In a second step, she shows how it can support the refining of implementation plans. A case study in action research tradition completes the theoretical discussions. Its subject is the building up of a large international company's R&D resources in low-cost countries.

Dr. Birgitte Snabe promovierte bei Prof. Dr. Peter Milling am Industrieseminar der Universität Mannheim. Sie ist als selbstständige Unternehmensberaterin tätig.
