Group model building to develop/test potential solutions

Summary

"Group modeling building brings together stakeholders closely associated with the food bank system, policy makers, and donors to participate in a training environment or workshop which runs on systems dynamics methodologies. This creates an environment to holistically understand the problem statement at hand and develop effective solutions for it.

The nature of capacity building or leverage action also needs to be agreed upon. Hence, having a multidisciplinary participant database helps work through the barriers and several stagnant mental models. This makes the prototyping and testing of chosen solutions easier on the project coordinators as well as on the system."
