Prestige Playground

Here you can download the spreadsheet with existing simulation and guidance to build new ones.

1. Repeat the Simulation

  1. Define the number of periods (e.g., 10) and the number of Hubs (e.g., 3) you want to include in the simulation.

  2. Set the fixed values for the simulation:

    • Initial Prestige ( P0\mathfrak{P}_{\tiny 0}) for all Hubs (e.g., 100)

    • Constraint factor ( c) (e.g., 1.4)

    • Penalty factor ( pp_{\tiny \ominus}) (e.g., 0.4)

  3. For each Hub, assign an archetype (e.g., Size, Performance, Conviction) and set the corresponding weights for each parameter -> wSundefinedwPSwiCLwPwGˇw_{\tiny \overlinesegment S} \text{, } w_{\tiny \overline{PS}}\text{, } w_{\tiny \overline{iCL}} \text{, } w_{\tiny \overrightarrow{P}} \text{, } w_{\tiny \check{G}} based on the chosen archetype. Ensure that the sum of the weights equals 1.

  4. For each period and each Hub, assign values to the parameters:

    • Total Community Members (TCM)

    • Average Member Participation Score ( PS\overline{PS})

    • Average Commitment Level ( iCL\overline{iCL})

    • Community Performance ( P\overrightarrow{P})

    • Community Growth ( Gˇ\check{G} ), calculated as the percentage change in TCM from the previous period

  5. Normalize the parameter values:

    • TCM: Divide each Hub's TCM by the highest TCM value across all periods and Hubs

    • PSiCLP\overline{PS} \text{, } \overline{iCL} \text{, } \overrightarrow{P}: Divide each value by the highest value (e.g., 1.00) across all periods and Hubs

    • Gˇ\check{G}: Use the percentage change in TCM from the previous period.

  6. Calculate the K & ΔK\Delta {K}values for each Hub in each period.

K=p=1n(wp×p)K = \displaystyle \sum_{p=1}^{n}(w_p \times p')
  1. Calculate the Prestige ( P\mathfrak{P}) for each Hub in each period using the General Formula for Prestige.

  2. Analyze the results.

2. Create a new simulation, step-by-step

To create new simulations, you can:

  • Modify the number of periods and Hubs.

  • Change the fixed values (initial Prestige, constraint factor, penalty factor).

  • Assign different archetypes and weights to the Hubs

  • Introduce different stress factors by modifying the parameter values for each Hub in each period.

  • Experiment with different normalization methods or formulas for calculating $K$, $\Delta K$, and Prestige

By following these steps, you can create and analyze infinite scenarios to verify and better understand the behavior of the Prestige framework under different (stress) conditions.
