I think this could be interesting and fun for some of you. I am hoping you ex military guys will respond to this in the comments and I will gather them together for a part 2 if a few of you chime in. This was posted over on good old B-arfcom the other day by one of the military members there.
Good afternoon all,
On account of our limited ability to meet in person at the moment due to current events, there is going to be a handful of online leadership development forums over the next few weeks. This forum is an introductory exercise, in the following weeks we will post a combination of readings, videos, and live classroom exercises.
What follows is a Tactical Decision Game, or TDG. TDGs are utilized by the armed forces as educational exercises, especially for student officers. Developing your ability to rapidly evaluate a situation, come to a decision, communicate it to others, and take action has positive benefits both inside and outside the military- especially in an organization like the American Pioneer Corps where you may be operating in chaos in response to an emergency situation.
Please post your responses to the below TDG. Do not simply explain what you will do, but explain in as much detail as possible your train of thought that brought you to your posted conclusion. Please do not edit posts- make corrections via subsequent posts. You should be done typing within 5 minutes of reading the TDG, and should only make corrections for spelling at that point prior to hitting submit.
