In Chapter 10 a different view on designing a business wargame is offered. We have structured each of the cases on the following basis: • point of departure • objectives and key questions • game setup • lessons learned. Strategy Testing CHAPTER 4 The most prominent application of business wargaming to date, clearly rooted in its primary military application, has been in the field of strategy testing. The idea is to take an existing strategic plan—which, as we have seen in Chapter 3, could have been developed in a simple or more elaborate form—and test it in a competitive environment in order to discover weaknesses, explore assumptions or simply find out whether it works or not.

THE COMPANY TEAM The company team represents the company conducting the wargame and aiming to answer the key strategic questions. The team is made up of senior managers from within the company and typically starts the game by executing its current strategic plan. In some instances, where a company deliberately wants to test alternative courses of action, the team may execute another hypothetical strategy or test an alternative business plan. In executing its strategy the team has all the liberty that it would have in the real world.

How resilient is our business? What happens if? Where is the next threat coming from? How much should we invest in countermeasures? Questions like these have their roots in military scenarios, and yet they are increasingly important for businesses, industries and entire economies. Examples include more politically flavored simulations, such as how shi s in global power will develop, the impact of terrorist actions on economies, and also companies. These are some of the main questions that can be addressed with wargaming.
