WHAT IS THE LGP?
THE LONG GAME PROJECT AIMS TO IMPROVE INSTITUTIONAL DECISION-MAKING, PLANNING AND CREATIVE THINKING USING TABLETOP EXERCISES AND SCENARIOS.
WHAT ARE TABLETOP EXERCISES?
Tabletop exercises are structured, collaborative activities designed to test and enhance an organisation’s preparedness for real-world events or scenarios.
These exercises simulate various situations, prompting participants to decide and solve problems based on their roles and responsibilities.
Tabletop simulation provides a low-risk, non-operational environment for participants to engage in open discussions, explore alternative strategies, and analyze their potential consequences without the pressures of real-world decision-making.
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.
- 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 design tools to lower the barriers to effective tabletop exercising and provide tools, advisory and consulting services
We design simulated tabletop exercises for decision-makers and their stakeholders.
Tabletop exercising is one of the best tools for preparing decision-making and future scenarios. However, exercises are hard to design, time-consuming to run and require expertise to nail.
We help with that.
The Long Game Project helps with anything tabletop exercise related for your team to run successful and impactful tabletop exercises.
From the small things:
- Scenario prompts
- Do-it-yourself guidebooks and SOP documents
- Simple consultation about a strategy or design approach
- Reviewing what you already have
- Teaching good design and facilitation skills
To the big things:
- Designing custom scenarios, small or large
- Advising on operations around tabletop exercises
- Full suite modulate consulting on more extensive projects
We will help you provide an engaging medium for your team and stakeholders to practice confronting and exploring the world’s toughest challenges.
Our aim to help address some of the world’s most pressing problems through creative thinking and dynamic decision-making.
Practice making decisions in a low-stakes, simulated environment.
Play it now before you live it later.
We can assist with all elements of the discovery, design, facilitation and reflection process.
First, by Defining your core concern or problem. What is on the horizon that keeps you up at night?
Then, Design a game to explore this problem set and objective.
Next, Play it out—facilitation of the tabletop.
Finally, Reflect, learn & improve.
Learn to move past traditional boundaries of brainstorming and develop creative approaches to solving tomorrow’s difficult problems by simulating being in them.
