The 3rd Edition Summer School in Managing Dynamic Complexity in the Public Sector – a System Dynamics-based Balanced Scorecard Approach
The 3rd Summer School on Managing Dynamic Complexity in the Public Sector: a System Dynamics-based Balanced Scorecard Approach is an elective course offered by the University of Palermo (Italy) with the support of University of North Carolina (USA). It also is part of the curriculum of the International Ph.D. program in “Model Based Public Planning, Policy Design and Management” which is jointly run with the Universities of Bergen (Norway) and Nijmegen (The Netherlands).
The event will be held in Mondello (Palermo), at Addaura Hotel, between 17th-22th of July, 2011.
The Summer School is explicitly oriented to Ph.D. students and researchers in the Public Administration, Public Policy and Management fields. Attending the Summer School also can be useful for practitioners in various public sector fields and consultants.
The Summer School follows the successful experience of the Summer Schools held in 2009 and 2010. In both years the events hosted 21 participants coming from different countries around the world.
In 2009 the Summer School was held in Ustica (a flourishing island located 60 kms North of Palermo), with students attending from different parts of the world (Brazil, Egypt, Holland, Mozambique, Norway, Poland, Venezuela, and Italy) on the topic of „Model Based Public Planning, Policy Design, and Management: a System Dynamics approach”.
In 2010 the Summer School was held in a 4-star hotel located in Mondello (Palermo). The School covered the topic of public sector performance, framing this subject around the viewpoints of different public sector industries. Examples and peculiarities of System Dynamics applications to specific industries of Health Care, Public Utilities, Energy, Housing, Public Works, and Social Services were provided. Participants were involved in working with teams to apply System Dynamics modelling to their own research fields.
To build on last year’s experience, this year the Summer School will focus on the topic of Dynamic Balanced Scorecards (DBSCs).
