Overview Exercise Purpose Exercise Objectives Saudi War Course Institutional Learning Objectives End of Course Exercise Learning Objectives Exercise Design Synopsis of Exercise Conclusion
Exercise Purpose The Exercise Purpose is Two Fold: One: To provide the students the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to respond to national a regional crisis. Two: To provide a venue in order to evaluate and assess the students across all of the Saudi War Course Institutional Learning Objectives.
Saudi War Course Institutional Learning Objectives SWC ILO 1: Comprehend strategic-thinking processes necessary to sustain innovative, agile, and ethical organizations in a joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational environment.

Capstone Exercise Learning Objectives EOC LO 1: Evaluate the uniqueness of operational and strategic level leadership as well as the competencies required to lead at the operational and strategic level EOC LO 2: Evaluate the national security challenges and opportunities in a future operating environment EOC LO 3: Evaluate the integrated employment of the elements of national power in a crisis scenario through strategy formulation and policy development EOC LO 4: Evaluate processes to develop theater strategies, estimates, and campaign plans to employ military and non-military elements of power in a joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational environment to achieve the desired national end state
Educational Wargame Types of War games: Analytical Educational Training This War game is an Educational War game. An Educational War game forces the participants to begin translating what they have studied and learned about strategy, operational art, command and control, leadership, and theories of warfare forging the lessons learned into something they can use to carry out their mission or improve their understanding of reality. This War game is designed to achieve and meet Educational Objectives. Educational War games / Experiential Learning
This is the Saudi War Course War game. It is the experiential platform which will allow the students the opportunity to demonstrate their synthesis of the principles, concepts, and processes taught at Saudi War Course. The game, focused at the strategic and operational leadership level, allows students to role play joint, interagency, and multinational staffs. Students evaluate national security challenges, apply elements of national power utilizing national security and military strategies to achieve desired end states. This is a Nine day graded exercise (6 days of Crisis Action followed by 3 MSEL driven moves utilizing JTLS) Exercise Synopsis
