The War Gaming Introductory Course educates new War Gaming Department (WGD) faculty and other DoD personnel on the WGD process used to plan, execute and analyze war games. Since nearly all WGD war games are analytic research projects, the one-week course covers many steps in traditional research projects.
Some of these include:
- Formulation of game/research project problem, purpose and objectives statements
- Creation of a game/research project design
- Developing products and processes to support game execution
- Gathering and analyzing data as outlined in the game’s data collection and analysis plan
