Exercise Management Services

Exercise Design, Delivery & Evaluation – Testing Plans & Policies – Capability Development

“We had a good impression of 4C Strategies’ crisis management services from their references and have been very satisfied with their delivery of our training and exercises. 4C also had a robust training tool, Exonaut, that we wanted to use; it made the exercise very realistic.”

Malin Görhammar, Chief Risk Officer, AMF Pension

An exercise is an instrument to train for, assess, practice, and build capability in a risk-free environment. Exercises enable leaders to test their decision-making in a crisis or emergency situation, while exposing organisational vulnerabilities so that they may be acted on in advance. In the current volatile risk landscape, organisations are facing an increasing likelihood of being confronted with a crisis – be it cyber security, supply chain, terrorism, pandemics, natural disasters, data breaches, IT outages or other unexpected events. Exercises can also be used for:
  • testing and validating policies, plans, procedures, training, equipment, and supplier agreements,
  • training for and clarifying roles and responsibilities,
  • improving coordination and communications,
  • identifying organisational vulnerabilities and gaps in resources,
  • enhancing individual and collective performance, and
  • identifying opportunities for improvement.

What do we do?

4C Strategies helps organisations to rigorously evaluate their resilience arrangements and assess whether they are fit-for-purpose in responding to incidents and crises. We deliver exercise management services to develop key capabilities in the areas of risk management, business continuity and incident and crisis management. This ranges from relatively simple workshops, through to tabletop and simulation or command-post exercises – where multiple elements of an organisation’s resilience capability can be subject to analysis and review.

Any exercise must be customised to your needs and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can help deliver an exercise or a longer-term capability development program. We offer four exercise models as a basis for that discussion:

  1. Discussion
  2. Tabletop
  3. Gaming
  4. Simulation

Why use 4C to deliver your exercises

  • Experience – we help deliver military and civilian exercises every day all around the world, giving us the experience to prepare credible scenarios, help define what “good” looks like, and evaluate performance against industry best practice.
  • Technology – our proprietary Exonaut platform allows us to more efficiently design, develop, deliver and evaluate exercises, enhanced with simulated twitter feeds, news clips and other injects. Whilst these multimedia tools may seem superfluous in the nuts and bolts of what an organisation is trying to do, they can be a great way to bring an exercise to life and engage your senior management.
  • Gravitas – At 4C we have a number of experts in the field of crisis management who have vast experience from a number of different sectors, including the military, emergency services, energy sector and financial services. They bring a certain gravitas to an exercise, they understand chain of command and they know how to speak to Executives or the Board. They are also well-practiced in thinking on their feet and are able to respond and adapt if the scenario takes a different direction.
