For decades, Jack Homer has generated the most consistently rigorous, relevant, and often surprising insights into the behavior of social systems. [Read his writings] to learn from the best how to build and test elegant and useful models of complex challenges in any domain.
— John D. Sterman, Jay W. Forrester Professor of Management, MIT
Jack Homer is one of the most experienced, skilled, and admired system dynamics consultants in the world. A great strength of his work is his insistence on firmly grounding models in the best available data and carefully iterating with expert clients to build models that can really guide understanding. [His writings are] required reading for students and practitioners in the field and bear witness to his unsurpassed high standards for building models that matter.

About Homer Consulting

Homer Consulting is a sole proprietorship of Dr. Jack Homer that offers customized system dynamics modeling services to private and public organizations.  Dr. Homer is an internationally recognized expert in system dynamics, a former faculty member at the University of Southern California (1984-1989), and a full-time consultant since 1990.

Dr. Homer has a reputation for developing strategy and planning models that are rigorous, evidence-based, and customized to be of maximal usefulness for each client.  An initial model is developed in the first weeks of a project, setting the stage for information gathering and model refinement that usually requires some months.  Step by step, a model emerges that is both flexible and realistic in its portrayal of potential futures and that can be used reliably by an organization looking to chart a new course.  

Dr. Homer's work has received awards from the International System Dynamics Society (in 1997 and 2011), the Applied Systems Thinking Institute (in 2008), and AcademyHealth (in 2012).  He has B.S. and M.S. degrees from Stanford University in applied mathematics and statistics, and a PhD in management from MIT.  He has published extensively and in 2012 published a collection of his writings, “Models That Matter: Selected Writings on System Dynamics 1985-2010”.
