4global were contracted by the Rio 2016 Organising Committee (OC) to lead the design, development and delivery of multiple discussion exercises, hybrid discussion / simulation exercises and a Games- wide simulation (GWS) exercise. This project had to be delivered in a very condensed timeframe in a high-pressure environment given the close proximity and importance of the Games.
The project spanned a number of phases covering the design of key aspects of each exercise (aims, objectives, approach, participants etc.), development and delivery of a series of discussion exercises leading into more dynamic hybrid discussion / simulation activities to generate greater realism. The final phase saw the development and delivery of a two-day GWS exercise rehearsing operations and interactions of several hundred participants from a broad range of functions and partner organisations.
The outcome of the delivery of the exercises was to significantly enhance joint readiness within and between the OC and partner organisations.
