TRAIN YOUR TEAM TO THINK DIFFERENTLY

WHAT ARE TABLETOP
EXERCISES?

Strategy, leadership and decision making are learnable skills that should be practiced.

Tabletop exercises are structured, collaborative activities designed to test and enhance an organisation’s preparedness for real-world events or scenarios.

Simulate a low-risk, non-operational environment for participants to engage in open discussions, explore alternative strategies, and analyze their potential effects without the pressures of real-world consequences.

WHY CONDUCT TABLETOP
EXERCISES?

Tabletop exercising has become an essential tool for businesses across industries as they strive to manage complex challenges, assess their preparedness, and develop resilience in the face of potential crises. The benefits of conducting tabletop exercises include the following:

  • Improved Decision-Making: Allowing participants to practice making critical decisions and evaluating their outcomes, leading to more informed and adequate decision-making in real-world situations in actual feedback loops.

  • Enhanced Communication and Collaboration: Fostering teamwork, coordination, and communication among participants, ensuring seamless coordination and cooperation during actual events.

  • Identification of Gaps and Weaknesses: By simulating realistic scenarios, reveal areas for improvement in an organisation’s policies, plans, and procedures, providing valuable insights for strengthening their resilience.

  • Training and Skill Development: Offer a unique opportunity for participants to develop and hone their skills in crisis management, problem-solving, and critical thinking.

  • Compliance and Regulatory Requirements: In some industries, exercising is a requirement for regulatory compliance, ensuring that organisations maintain a high level of preparedness for potential crises.

We have brand experience

....and they said nice things about us

As expected, the table top exercise that The Long Game Project led for us was a ton of fun and incredibly engaging. What I didn’t expect was how much the simulation helped our organization plan for future risks and decide the most important metrics to track. The value for time of working with The Long Game Project is off the charts!

Director, Consulting Firm

We were able to leave behind our day-to-day and really immerse in a fun and eye-opening exercise. It helped change the way we think about our business and how we run workshops and was a great bonding exercise to boot!”

Team Lead, Global CPG

I was made aware of the Long Game Project, I was impressed by the level of communication and directness when it came to fulfilling the specified goals. I was also surprised by the amount of nuance captured in the game design to the specific field the exercise pertained. Overall, I’d recommend working with LGP if you’re looking for an engaging and bespoke table-top exercise that’s tailored to your needs, and want to work with a customer- and impact-oriented team.
