Smart Soldier - Quick Decision Exercises

By The Cove May 14, 2019

Army Lessons conducts Quick Decision Exercises on their Discussion Forum. A Quick Decision Exercise is a combat scenario where the reader is provided with a situation that requires them to utilise certain resources to achieve an outcome. Not all considerations for the situation can be provided for in the forum, so the reader is given scope to make assumptions when developing a solution. Quick Decision Exercises are good ways in which to improve your tactical acumen, regardless of rank or Corps, and can be conducted individually or discussed in small teams. If you haven't done one before, why not try this one and let us know what you think?

For those serving members, more can be found on the Defence Protected Network at the Army Lessons Forum.
