When to Wargame?

When solutions to a problem do not yet exist, and the data needed for that solution must be generated by human beings with specific backgrounds within specific conditions that manifest the problem to be explored.

Wargames are invaluable to investigate processes, explore issues, identify questions, evaluate doctrine, and to gain insights into complex problems and/or issues.

When NOT to Wargame?

When a problem to be solved, is complicated but not complex, thus it has a definitive solution based upon existing quantitative and/or scientific data, that once discovered, will ultimately solve the problem.

Or, if the solution data doesn't yet exist, but is not based upon insights generation from human interaction and discussion about the problem and a specific operational context that exacerbates the problem.
