26 factors and 44 connections that form 15 feedback loops. The model answers the question what it does take to act successfully.
There are reoccurring situations and there are new, complicated or complex situation. The weighting could be adapted to fit a concrete organization, individual, company, department .....
To overcome our mental boundaries we need tools. There can be qualitative or quantitative modeling.
The Insight Matrix shows how tool based reflexions help even more than best practice alone. Whether in long run best practice, gut feeling or modeling is most important depends on the proportion of reoccurring challenges compared to new challenges.
This illustration just shows what is meant when we model quantitatively and look at scenarios.
This is a spaghetti plot of a monte carlo simulation. It shows the range of possible developments.
A histogram, then, shows the likelihoods of different outcomes.
A fool with a tool is still a fool. Facing complex challenges without a tool we are all fools.
Note: It is nonsense to argue that complex challenges cannot be fully grasped and thus shouldn't be modeled at all. When we have to decide something the worst model is better than no model.
