A new tree-based graphical model — the dynamic staged tree — is used to model
discrete-valued discrete-time multivariate processes which are hypothesised to exhibit certain symmetries
concerning how situations might unfold. We define and implement a one-step-ahead
prediction algorithm using multi-process modelling and the power steady model. This is robust
to short-term variations in the data yet sensitive to underlying system changes. We demonstrate
that the whole analysis can be performed in a conjugate way so that the vast model space can be
traversed quickly and results communicated transparently. We also demonstrate how to analyse
causal hypotheses on this model class. Our techniques are illustrated using a simple educational
