CNA Creates Organizational Troop-to-Task Wargames

CNA's Troop-to Task Wargame (OT3) is designed for senior military leaders who are standing up new organizations, or restructuring existing ones, and wish to test their performance before implementing them. It establishes a laboratory-like setting to run the organization through a variety of realistic scenarios at a realistic tempo.

The game helps leaders answer key questions about resources and tasking—who, what and how long.

  • Is the organization right-sized and right-staffed for the assigned mission?
  • Where are the gaps and seams in executing responsibilities within the organization, or across organizations?
  • What is the organization’s capability to respond to expected and unexpected events within a continuum of operations?

Outlines the rules and requirements to assemble and execute an OT3 wargame—from designing personnel cards and building scenarios to execution. Data collection is a critical piece of OT3 and allows for qualitative and quantitative analysis that supports recommendations for organizational design that are unique to each wargame.
