Systems dynamics analysis using group model building, and in particular the identification of feedback loops linking various factors, can be used effectively to highlight leverage points for interventions. Producing such analysis through a participative group modeling process that engages a broad range of stakeholders provides the basis for a shared understanding of key problems and identification of potential solutions.
