In the aftermath of the 44-day war, the AGBU Armenian Virtual College (AVC) created a dedicated course on Scenario-based Strategic Planning authored by world renown experts and provided it on its e-learning platform, with the intent of disseminating strategic planning practices among decision makers in the homeland and diaspora.
The strategic development course introduces the IRC (Interest, Resolve, Capability Framework) method for assessing multi-actor, highly uncertain and complex national security environments.
It offers interactive video lessons, supplemented by quizzes, maps and other resources to help students better understand national security concepts and their application.
The lessons are followed by a pre-recorded simulation exercise to demonstrate the practical application of tools and methods covered by the course. The simulation game was conducted with a group of subject matter experts, who were using various scenarios to assess future pathways for Armenia and develop strategic recommendations.
