Our commercial and military experts have refined this tool for use within a commercial environment, where each wargame is tailored to the specific requirements of our client. A typical wargaming team would include a senior ex-military partner/associate in addition to a sector, technical and regional specialist. We area also able to draw upon our change management, behavioural change and communication experts where required.
War gaming is particularly effective at identify risks and assessing how significant they are by breaking down silos inside an organisation. We work with our clients to identify key stakeholders; as identification, representation and collaboration of stakeholders is crucial to the success of wargaming. This allows inter-departmental and cross-functional barriers or ‘silos’ to be removed and communication between stakeholders to be nurtured.
In essence our wargames role-play a simulated business scenario involving your key stakeholders, where our associates facilitate and robustly stress test your plans. They are also increasingly being used by private equity firms as a ‘health check’ prior to committing to an investment in an organisation or asset.
