Valens Global designs and facilitates a variety of scenarios that prompt participants to examine challenges as either Tabletop Exercises or War Games. Challenges that Valens simulations have examined range from global affairs issues such as climate change, terrorism, and pandemic response (for academic and governmental clients); the promulgation of best practices for terrorist watchlisting and addressing racially and ethnically motivated violent extremism (for intergovernmental organizations); and responses to cyber-attacks (for private companies that need to test their crisis response capabilities). In Valens simulations, participants critically evaluate relevant information, negotiate with allies and adversaries, and exercise decision making skills. Our simulations provide realistic, relevant scenarios that can build experience and expertise, and help planners to anticipate dilemmas that are either likely to arise or else that could potentially take them by surprise. War Games are immersive multiplayer, scenario-based exercises while Tabletop Exercises allow participants to analyze relevant challenges, with the exercise focused on robust discussions and the decision-making process.
