WHY RED TEAM?
We are all human with different perspectives, preconceptions, biases and assumptions that influence our decisions. Like it or not, none of us are perfect, and neither are any of the systems and processes we employ in our daily routines.
Likewise, your competitors, suppliers and customers each have their own motivations, strengths and weaknesses; Red Teaming can give you that vital, external perspective that will give you the edge.
To make the best, most informed decisions, you and your people need to have an understanding of how all of the above can impact on every strategy, concept, plan and project you underake. Only Red Teaming provides the tools and techniques to achieve that.
Red Teaming helps you to see the whole system, to understand the internal and external influences, to expose the assertions and flawed assumptions that can wipe out a risk budget or even bring a project to its knees. It looks for gaps in evidence, misconceptions masquerading as truth, and hidden opportunities as well as threats and risk.
Undetected bias can lead to groupthink, where decision-makers unwittingly abandon critical thinking in order to reach agreement.
Red Teaming aids in the recognition and mitigation of any biases that may adversely affect a concept, process or project, reducing the likelihood of costly failures or flawed decisions.
Red Teaming helps alleviate the group pressures that are inherent in any business, uncovering any myopia that can creep in, whilst challenging and improving flawed systems and decision-making processes.
A properly trained Red Team can identify otherwise unrecognised risks and opportunities through the use of structured analysis and creative, contrarian thinking.
Red Teaming gives you that extra competitive edge.
