Abstract
Complex systems of systems involving social, economic, security, and political dimensions can pose dire challenges to decision makers: Numerous (often nonlinearly) interacting factors that must not be neglected; Systems are dynamic: evolve/change with human interventions and independently; Effects of interventions are hard to anticipate and often do not take place immediately after human actions. In complex situations, human interventions tend to lead to failure or to new unintended problems (Dörner, 1996). Here we present a prototype microworld training aiming to help develop the cognitive skills / attitudes required to deal effectively with complex decision making (CxDM) situations.
