System Dynamics Lifetime Achievement Award
System Dynamics Society occasionally recognizes people for making a significant contribution to a field or a practice over an extended period of time. This is the only award of the Society that is based on a body of work done over lifetime and not on a single article. This award was formalized in 2012 and had been given very sparingly in the past. No nominations are solicited for the award and the Jay Forrester Award Committee decides on the winner. The award carries a plaque recognizing the achievement of the winner.
