Collect and analyse: Gather information in real-time to drive high quality, confident decision-making.

Using System Dynamics research to overhaul public service decision making

So, what is UCL (and more importantly, System Dynamics)?

University College London’s (UCL) Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering designs and delivers research on the interactions between the built environment and health, human wellbeing, productivity, energy use and climate change.


Together, 4OC and UCL recognise there is a major challenge in developing a collaborative understanding of the conflicts and tensions of different neighbourhood issues and prioritisation of problems/solutions.

UCL is working with 4OC to co-develop a stronger understanding of the complex systems that lead to significant delivery problems with publicly funded community services.


The goal of this work is to improve the delivery of system strategic priorities (such as population health, social value, second chances and fair criminal services, etc.) within the available resources, whilst engaging local residents, who form a necessary part of the solution.

The Partnership

Ucl1Using a systems thinking tool called Causal Loop Diagrams, 4OC and UCL are highlighting the interconnections of factors within the test case of West Northamptonshire Council in an exploratory project examining the use of System Dynamics.

The project aims to understand the complexity and leverage points for service delivery, increase systems thinking-based decision making in practice, and support the mitigation of risk relating to inequalities.

By bringing together 4OC on-the-ground realities with cutting-edge academic research and theory, we are trailblazing what it truly means to deliver public social and economic value.
