Ambjörn Naeve on Provocative Modelling

Ambjörn Naeve held a seminar on Provocative Modelling on 12 February. Ambjörn is presently a guest lecturer at DSV. Here follows Ambjörn’s summary and documentation of the seminar.

Provocative Modeling is a term that I came up with a while ago to describe models that provoke “engagement by disagreement” by exposing controversial ideas, beliefs and assumptions – often called prejudice. Since we can process only up to about 30 bits per second in our conscious mind, while we are at the same time receiving about 3 million bits per second through our senses, this information needs to be compressed about 100.000 times before we can deal with it on the conscious level. Hence, without pre-judging there can be no effective judging, and therefore it is not an option to be without prejudice. The question is only which prejudices you have. Also, by exposing your underlying beliefs and assumptions related to an issue, they become visible and therefore amenable to change. This is what Peter Senge calls Mental Modeling (http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-5034656.html), which is one of the five disciplines of organizational learning (http://www.solonline.org/organizational_overview).In my talk I will display (what I think is) some of my more “provocative models” on terrorism, religion, gender, education, economics, and promotion strategies within a large organization. These models have been developed in our modeling tool Conzilla (www.conzilla.org) and the links to the presented models will be made available for the participants.
