an intelligence Training exercise

Improve Your Teams

Knowledge4Strength are proud to announce our new training pack ‘It Never Snows on a Bridge too Far.’ This multiplayer, collaborative intelligence exercise is modelled upon the real-world events throughout the lead up and progression of the great ‘Battle of Arnhem’ in 1944.

Participants’ information handling, scenario assessment and collaboration skills are tested under time pressure and cognitive overload. Teams must work together to sift through past reports, reference material and update ‘inserts’ to work out the threats to the attacking forces.

 Thoroughly researched from both German and UK original resources, the exercise includes a few surprising twists that provide memorable learning points


Learning Goals include:

  • Applying Structured Analytical Techniques
  • Effectively Managing Information
  • Improving Team communication
  • Identifying and mitigating biases, both individual and group

Suitable for both civilian and military teams

How To Play

The team is initially presented with a starting pack which provides them with an abundance of information: back-dated reports, word-of-mouth rumours, photographs, maps, information booklets etc. Not only are the team required to manage and organise the clutter, they also have to question each source’s relevance, importance and reliability. Additional updates are issued in frequent, irregular intervals, keeping the game fast-paced and the players under constant, building pressure. The exercise aim is to work out military threats- ‘what is the enemy doing and why?’ The overall learning objectives are to improve behaviours, processes and analytical techniques.
