The players in the Strategic Triad game take on roles as key planners and strategists of the cold war strategic nuclear arsenals.
Each player has a personal briefing that sets objectives and provides key background information relevant to their role, and the players take decisions, interact with other players, and deploy resources under their control. The experienced Past Perspectives Game Control team then adjudicate results and provide realistic feedback on the player decisions. The game examines how changes in technology and geopolitics influence thinking and planning.
Here is an example of how Strategic Triad might be organised for a 20 participant event - with some description of the various roles. There are eight teams of participants usually divided up randomly to discourage cliques and organisational hierarchical issues (though they inevitably arise). Alternatively, the teams could be organised around departments or workgroup teams if the client prefers.
Strategic Triad has a strong emphasis on strategic thinking and policy
planning - this simulates the development of strategy over a 45-year period,
so the long term effects of forward thinking can be seen.
