Our Approach

Our Approach, Quirk Solutions, Chris Paton, Business Wargaming


There are no templates to what we do. We listen to your needs, explain how we can help, then collaboratively work with you to design the package you need. This means you get exactly what you want, delivering the outcomes you need, efficiently and effectively. Our unique approach uses your team as the subject matter experts, in tandem with our experience at analysing, writing, testing and implementing strategy/plans. This reduces the amount of time your team spend off-line, is more cost-effective and delivers improved results.


We deliver support in a range of ways. Some of our clients use us to help them in a precise and highly focused manner, such as wargaming a specific business plan, or facilitating a skills seminar to help them develop a strategy. This ‘in and out’ method keeps distractions to a minimum and delivers high quality output in a short time frame. Other clients want to develop an internal business wargaming capability, or run their own planning seminars. In this instance, we provide the education to help them develop the required skills, and support them over time, to ensure consistent quality of delivery, ultimately leaving them independent of us.


We have used business wargaming to smooth M&A design, to analyse the strengths of nascent strategy ideas, as well as to test highly developed 10-year programmes. We have provided planning support with a ‘Quality Assurance’ optic to reassure investors, used planning seminars to bring dysfunctional teams into a coherent whole, and helped one client to reduce ineffective activity by 40%. We have provided speakers to stimulate, inspire and motivate appetite for change. We will adapt to what you need and deliver you the results you want. All our team are experienced at working in international locations and with multi-national organisations.
