Wargaming is a crucial process used in the Military Appreciation Process (MAP) across all levels (individual, staff and joint) to test and improve tactical and strategic courses of action against simulated enemy and threat scenarios. But it also an important activity in it's own right outside of the MAP. It can be used more broadly to test hypotheses in day-to-day decision making, and as a PME tool to develop, refine and hone tactical acumen. Wargaming helps to generate a ‘second order thinking’ mindset that is crucial in military roles.
