To your point, the "wrong definition" of war gaming in most companies seems to be more the reuse of entrenched ideas into a response plan as opposed to simulating something and then bubbling up the response plan. The latter is the way to go, but is expensive and time consuming. I think the typical consultant run wargame is a 4 week project with a $200K+ price tag.

Not sure what the answer is to a quick alternative to war gaming to avoid the echo chamber ... aside from maintaining a broad, diverse network which won't parrot your thinking.

Very good observations from Jeff and Rob. However, go back 20+ years and look and business school education. The field was crowded with computer-based games in which alternative strategies were trashed or rewarded. Go back 30+ years, and game theory was part of the curriculum. Now, fast forward to the present and look for these and other artifacts of analytical approaches to strategic planning. What do you see? Answer: Not much. What's this about?
