Key Takeaways:

  1. Agent-based social simulations help identify how macro behavior and operational risks emerge from micro-level rules.
  2. The value in agent-based social simulations is developing a more accurate risk model. These simulations are particularly effective in helping organizations understand internal competition and what might happen when entering unknown environments.
  3. Process for developing an agent-based social simulation:
    • Map business processes with agent behaviors
    • Develop a conceptual model
    • Encode the model
    • Run “what if” scenarios
  4. Depending on the size and complexity of the organization, agent-based social simulations can be developed by a two-person internal team in 6-12 months.
