What We Do
General Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander for the allied invasion of France on D-Day, said: "Luck is where preparation meets opportunity."
Businesses need to develop strategic plans that will inform decisions regarding marketing and operational tactics.
We organize, lead, and manage strategy formulation sessions and wargaming exercises that ensure that all aspects of a strategy are fully considered. These exercises are key to identifying unexpected outcomes and unintended consequences of any strategic initiative.
Asymmetric's strategy development process includes concepts, principles, tools, frameworks, and processes that will help your business create effective and efficient strategic plans that will help you win in the marketplace.
What is Business Wargaming?
A business wargame is a process for adapting military strategy, tools, models, and planning to a business situation.
Asymmetric wargames are executed to gain a deep and comprehensive understanding of the competitive landscape. It is executed through role-playing situations where some participants represent the client company's brands or products and the other teams represent key competitors. Often one additional team represents the market, the regulatory backdrop, and other "uncontrollable" factors.
Business wargames yield three primary benefits:
Training and practical exercises in the application of military strategy, the "Art of War," to business scenarios.
A deep and robust insight into the strengths, weaknesses, and likely courses of action for key competitors.
The foundation for the development of a comprehensive competitive strategy and viable contingency plans.
