Decisión Ejecutiva (DE) helps organizations of all kinds to add value by investing in specific skills in their operations and personnel. The Decisión Ejecutiva (DE) team of specialized consultants has organized and executed practical and table exercises at an international level.

As the Disaster Recovery Plans, an Incident Response Plan is never known to work until something happens. Or until something happens, in the form of exercise. The exercises are critical to ensure that your plan actually meets real scenarios and continues to do so as threats evolve. They must be meaningful for your business and integral in their design while committing to your team and being practical to execute. So, where do you start?

There are seven types of exercises, each of which is based on discussions or operations.

Seminars: a seminar is an informal debate, designed to guide participants to new or updated plans, policies or procedures (for example, a seminar to review a new Standard Operating Procedure for Evacuation).

Workshops: A workshop resembles a seminar, but it is used to create specific products, such as a draft plan or policy (for example, a training workshop and exercise plan is used to develop a training and exercise plan). several years).

Table exercises: a table exercise involves key personnel who discuss simulated scenarios in an informal environment. Table exercises can be used to evaluate plans, policies, and procedures.

Games: A game is a simulation of operations that often involves two or more teams, usually in a competitive environment, using rules, data and procedures designed to represent a real or assumed real-life situation.

Operations-based exercises: Operations-based exercises validate plans, policies, agreements, and procedures, clarify roles and responsibilities and identify resource gaps in an operating environment.
Operations-based exercises include drills, a drill is a coordinated and supervised activity that is generally used to test a single operation or specific function within a single entity (for example, a fire department conducts a decontamination drill).

Functional exercises: a functional exercise examines and/or validates the coordination, command, and control between several coordination centers of multiple agencies (for example, an emergency operations center, a joint field office, etc.). A functional exercise does not imply any “boot on the ground” (ie the first responders or emergency officers responding to an incident in real time).

Large-scale exercises: A large-scale exercise is a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional, multi-disciplinary exercise that involves functionally (for example, a joint field office, emergency operations centers, etc.) and operational human resources of response (for example, firemen who decontaminate simulated victims).
