Anticipating Your Future

Speculating about the future is easy but having numerically meaningful future scenarios allows our clients to be prepared. Using computational modeling, Whiteshield simulates ‘what if’ scenarios. For example, the Future of Country Navigator models every single person and company of a country as a virtual agent, and simulates each virtual agent’s daily activity – including trade, work and production. This allows us to simulate shocks. For example, what happens if a tsunami destroys the firm’s plant or COVID makes people change their consumption patterns? These insights in turn allow our clients to be better prepared for such shocks.

How Whiteshield can help

Whiteshield can help organisations to understand their competitive and stakeholder environments through computer-aided modeling. With these models, we can help your organisation to:

  • Find the best response to a challenge, through a simulation of different responses
  • Prepare for future events through the simulation of different scenarios
  • Encode your organisational knowledge into our models

For this purpose we employ a host of different modeling techniques:

  • Agent-Based Modeling 
  • Macro and microeconomic modeling 
  • Microsimulation 
  • System Dynamics 
  • Economic estimation
  • Machine Learning and AI modeling
