Operation Strike Fighter Online

Strike Fighter Online

Operation Strike Fighter is a simulation that enables to experience the challenges of communication, collaboration as well as conflict resolution and reconciling the interests of various parties.  

It is a metaphor of life within an organization where different teams, departments and people have to learn how to communicate and achieve a common goal.

The game was inspired by a negotiation case within the US Army in the 90-ies.  The need to replace the obsolete fleet of jetfighters and budget limitations forced the command to start off a government program called Joint Strike Fighter. The program was to lead to the creation of an ultra-modern jetfighter model to be used by all the army. American commanders had to reconcile the interests which were apparently impossible to accord as the chosen plane had to meet the needs of all the forces.
