Wargaming is a useful process that can reveal great insights, if conducted properly.  Unfortunately, many wargames fail because of:

  • Biases amongst the staff
  • Organizational biases
  • Dominant personalities steering the process
  • Poor time management
  • Poor analysis of the situation
  • Staff “stove pipes”
  • “Throw away COAs”

More often than not, a staff conducts a wargame and is bogged down by the process itself, and loses sight of the intended goal of the wargame: to determine the best course of action.

We can create a wargame for you, or guide your staff through the wargaming process in a creative way in order to counteract these common barriers. We leverage a variety of tools such as andragogy, game design principles, and red team methodologies, to get you out of your comfort zone, and into a place where learning and analysis can occur. And we promise: there will be no “throw away COAs.”
