In spite of all of the challenges the 2008-09 Recession has caused businesses, it has been a wake-up call for many – a call to action, a call for change, a call for survival, and, unfortunately for some, a call to bunker down.
A quote I developed years ago to help explain simulation modeling is, “Nothing is more disruptive to the current state than a change in reality.” Fortunately, for me, I recognized this at a young age, and have been able to witness first-hand both the impact of a change in reality and the resulting actions by those impacted. Interestingly, no matter what the change, most businesses react in a predictable manner.
