The ability to anticipate future needs is an essential ingredient of successful executive decision making. Recently, RS2 helped a government customer visualize their future needs by supporting a tabletop simulation for them in Frederick, Maryland. For the simulation, RS2 used hypothetical situations to develop a scenario which enabled the customer to think through what might be their technology needs in the year 2030. Over sixty representatives from the military services, interagency, academia and the private sector participated in the simulation which applied a wide range of facilitation and Red Teaming techniques to get the most out of the everyone who attended.
Four members of the RS2 team conducted a State Building Exercise in support of the NATO Regional Cooperation Course #16 (NRCC-16) at the NATO Defense College in Rome, Italy November 9-11, 2016. Twice annually, RS2 organizes and facilitates the capstone event to a 10-week course that combines military, law enforcement and foreign service officer students from Middle East and North Africa countries with students from NATO countries. Each NRCC class is comprised of approximately 40 students from 25 countries and is NATO’s largest outreach program.
