Train to Learn: Designing Better Exercise Scenarios

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Too often exercises are designed for the purpose of conducting an exercise. When exercises are designed with a pre-scripted “win”, exercise participants are denied the opportunity to try new things, take risks, and test plans and procedures. When scenarios are developed to support exercise objectives, they need to be build with sufficient complexity to truly test plans and whole-of-society resilience. Further, scenarios should be developed so that they can be used to test all four Emergency Management pillars which means that the same scenario can be used throughout the entire cycle.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to develop scenarios that can truly tease out learning opportunities regardless of how experienced the training audience may be or how many sectors of society are represented.
