Wargaming is a decision-making tool designed by the military to stress test and evaluate plans, to expose unidentified risks and potential opportunities. It provides structured but intellectually liberating safe-to-fail environments to help explore what works (winning/succeeding) and what does not (losing/failing), at relatively low cost.
Strategia Worldwide has refined this tool for the commercial environment in order to test planning assumptions and anticipate potential outcomes of actions. Simulated scenarios and ‘red teaming’ stress test existing risk management plans and ensure inter-departmental and cross-functional barriers or ‘silos’ are exposed.
Wargames are tailored to the specific requirements of our clients. A typical Strategia wargame team would consist of a senior ex-military partner/associate together with a sector, technical or regional specialist. We also draw upon our change management, behavioural change and communications experts where necessary.’
“Strategia’s Africa specialists conducted a bespoke ‘360’ risk assessment of AWF operations across Sub-Saharan Africa together with a detailed security review of our Head Office operation in Nairobi. Risks which affected our strategy were identified, followed by clear and incisive recommendations. Strategia’s deep knowledge of the geo-political space we operate in, combined with their unparalleled on the ground practical experience gave us a unique opportunity to review our approach to risk.”Tom Ogilvie-GrahamCEO Africa Wildlife Foundation
