Descripción
The simulation of expected impacts from alternative program designs has become a fundamental tool for effective program management. This case study analyzes the alternative designs for the organization of small farmers in Puebla State (México). Given the complexity of the program, systems approaches were desirable. Within these approaches, System Dynamics (SD) was firstly choosen. Given the high relevance of the different perspectives about how to improve the farms, a Soft Systems (SSM) approach was incorporated. So far big synergies have been found between both tools since SSM allows to greatly explicit all the frameworks and assumptions behind the SD model and also to get the desired transformation in the system in a systemic way, instead of modelling the alternative that seems better from the own understanding. From the case study perspective, these approaches allowed to support the decision making dealing with the system?s complexity.
