Red Team Thinking

Boot Camp



Discover battle-tested and business-proven Red Team Thinking tools and techniques

that you can start using right away to make good strategic decisions faster and become the leader your organization needs to succeed in today’s complex and rapidly changing world.


Don’t Outsource Thinking.


Bad leaders react

Good leaders plan



Unfortunately, too many leaders today no longer do. Instead of thinking for themselves, they have relinquished that role. They let others think for them. They hire expensive, outside consultants to tell them what to think and how to act, but those consultants don't know anymore than their own employees do. Or they try to solve their problems by adopting new methodologies. But those new ways of working don’t work without new ways of thinking.

Battle tested, business proven.


Red Team Thinking® is a cognitive capability that:

  • Engages critical thinking
  • Exposes threats and opportunities
  • Enables distributed decision making
  • Encourages diversity of thought

It is based on a set of tools originally developed by the military and intelligence agencies to:

  • Navigate complexity
  • Think more strategically
  • Develop new ideas and perspectives
  • Be more adaptive and resilient
  • Make better decisions faster in your complex world

Your training starts with this course – the Red Team Thinking Boot Camp – which is designed to introduce you to the core concepts of Red Team Thinking, as well as the science and psychology behind it, while also equipping you with two of our core RTT tools: Think-Write-Share and Six Strategic Questions™.

NOTE: This course is a prerequisite for all of our other training.
