Strategy Dynamics Ltd provides the tools and courses for building Dynamic Business Models - in management terms "Living Business Models" - working, quantified simulations that match real-world enterprises or their challenges. These models explain exactly how the business system works and performs, including all interdependencies, thresholds and intangible factors, project how it will likely perform, enabling management to plan and manage the future as it unfolds.
(See  The underlying science, system dynamics, is well known, but until now has been too complex to achieve widespread adoption. We have made three important advances ... [a] an 'agile' methodology that makes the model building process simple and reliable, see and [b] easy-to-use software that enables model-building with management in real-time, see and and [c] detailed and extensive online courses on how to build and use these models, see  
Join us at our workshop at SW18 to learn just how powerful and practical the Strategy Dynamics tool-set can be.

Few process related decisions are straightforward. Changes in one area of a process will impact other areas – often in ways not anticipated. Link2 as UK and Irish Arena Partners, have extensive experience promoting the utilisation of Arena Discrete Event Simulation (DES) Software by Rockwell Automation to simulate processes and evaluate the full implication of decisions before they are put into practice.

Arena DES has a strong global presence with over 900 academic institutions and the majority of Fortune 100 companies utilising the tool. It’s therefore no surprise that there is a plethora of documented success and the tool maintains a respected academic pedigree. So, regardless of whether DES is performed as part of an Academic Research or Commercial Project, Link2 are in a unique position to discuss the benefits and provide the appropriate Arena Licence (functionality), tailored training packages (all skill levels) and consultancy support (ad-hoc/turnkey).

Furthermore, Arena plays a strategic role in Link2’s wider product offering. Once DES identifies ‘Strategic’ or ‘Operational’ business advantages, we provide cost-effective and specifically tailored solutions to challenges faced by modern industry through a combination of market leading IT products coupled with our own in-house Software, Automation and Installation teams.
