Integrated, independent, inspiring – Southern African Systems Analysis Centre (SASAC)
Integrated, independent, inspiring were the themes of this year Southern African Systems Analysis Centre’s Emerging Researchers Program (SASAC), which was launched 20 August 2017 in Johannesburg, South Africa!
This three-week program gathered attention from many people interested in increasing their systems thinking skills. Besides, system approach, participants were exposed to the leadership and collaboration skills through series of workshops and seminars by Mary Scholes, Ulf Dieckmann, Adam French, Micheal Gastrow and many other respected scholars.
One of the tools used during the program was one of our simulations – Nexus Game facilitated by Piotr Magnuszewski. The game was previously played in Austria, Germany and in African Development Bank headquarters in Ivory Coast. The Nexus Game once again induced positive reactions from the players! We hope that it won’t be the last time our game is used in South Africa!

The SASAC program, launched in 2016, is being implemented by a consortium of four universities, namely the Universities of the Western Cape, Limpopo, Witwatersrand, and Stellenbosch.
