    Results Based Management is a shift from focusing on inputs and activities to focusing on outputs, outcomes, and impact. Results are the changes that can be described and measured and it’s the consequence of a cause-effect relationship. They imply that changes in behaviours by individuals, groups of people, organizations, government bodies or society have taken place.

    Computational methods have revolutionised the sciences, including the social sciences. Researchers are able to experiment with different hypotheses in silico, investigating the dynamics of complex, interdependent systems. Agent-based models simulate people (or firms or other entities) taking actions influenced by their own characteristics and their social and physical environment. These models are particularly good at modelling the heterogeneity of a population and exploring the implications of the interactions between people and their actions.
