Overview

Field-tested strategies that target solutions and plot new growth

“As a warfighter and a military commander, I know the importance of using wargames to test strategies and plans before risking blood and treasure. The authors of Wargaming for Leaders tell the inside story of how wargames can help decision makers achieve success and avoid the pain of failure.”

-General (Ret.) Anthony Zinni, former Commander of U.S. Central Command

“Over the past several years, I have personally participated in several wargames to find solutions to the health challenges facing our country. These simulations can accomplish in a day or two the kind of practical problem solving and consensus building that too often takes months or even years. If your organization hasn't put these methods to work, you should.”

-Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, founder of the Center for Health Transformation

“Wargaming, once only a discipline used in military preparation, has emerged as a driving force in shaping strategies in corporate boardrooms. Any leader in either government or business will benefit greatly from this book and understanding the potential of wargaming in their own decision making.”

-Michael McConnell, Director of National Intelligence, United States

"Fascinating stuff. These wargaming techniques allow participants to develop scenarios that can lead to unexpected and remarkable outcomes. The wargames described in this book, particularly those on national security and energy issues, often suggest a future no one could have imagined in advance. Public policymakers should take note."

--New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and former U.S. Secretary of Energy
