THE RED TEAM THINKING™ STRATEGY BOOTCAMP
The Red Team Thinking™ Strategy Bootcamp gives individuals and organizations the tools and processes they need to create and execute winning strategies and make better business decisions in today’s complex and rapidly changing world. It’s based on powerful techniques developed by the military and intelligence agencies, as well as a proven execution system created by one of the most successful CEOs in history.
In our hyperconnected world, the half-life of any decision or market position is getting shorter. This requires managers to make informed decisions quickly while still remaining open to changing direction to avoid emergent challenges and take advantage of new opportunities. The Red Team Thinking™ Strategy Bootcamp provides managers with the tools and techniques they need to:
- Understand the challenges and opportunities they face
- Cultivate innovative think to solve for these problems and ensure the best ideas win, regardless of where they originate in the organization
- Develop clear and effective strategies for implementing those ideas
- Rigorously stress-test those plans to ensure they can succeed
- Create a relentless implementation process to track their plan’s progress and ensure it achieves its desired goals
This is a practical, hands-on course built around real-world challenges and opportunities your company is dealing with right now. All of the in-class and out-of-class work is designed to yield actionable insights that your organization can start using today, while at the same time building your in-house capabilities.
This program is structured as five individual units of eight hours each. The specific schedule can be adjusted to meet the needs of your organization. While the entire program can be completed in a single week, it is often more effective if employees attend class for two consecutive days per month for two months, then one day the third month. This allows us to provide participants with short but meaningful out-of-class assignments to encourage them to practice and continue to develop the skills they are learning. These small projects are developed in consultation with your company in order to ensure they are directly relevant to the day-to-day functions of the organization.
Day 1: Ideation
Day 2: Strategy Development

ADVANCED RED TEAM TRAINING
For companies that want to stand up in-house red teams, we offer a formal red team training program designed to take students from raw recruits to fully certified red teamers. This intensive training program, which covers the full panoply of red teaming tools and techniques, consists of four, week-long modules delivered over the course of 12 months. It was developed by the same people who created the U.S. Army’s red team leaders course, recognized as the gold-standard for red team training around the world. It is the first — and only — program that provides comprehensive decision-support red team training and certification program. We can work with your organization to tailor this training to your specific needs and schedule. Contact us to learn more about this program and find out how you can create your own, in-house red team.
