The Artifice System for Deceptive Thinking
Generates creative solutions to challenging problems
Supports the conception of activities outside of the target’s ability to make sense of what is really happening
Facilitates thinking outside the knowledge, mindset, and imagination of the target
Combines insight, cunning, creativity, simplicity and elegance
The framework provides a more methodical approach than we currently use. Really breaking down the steps will help us to consider the problem more fully.”

Awesome course! A must for Field-grade and Senior Commissioned Officers. Many applications in Strategic Planning and effective implementation of military plans. Well executed. Operational Commanders will need this training.”

This is hands down the most organized class I have taken since being operational. It’s not just about deception but how to think and then how to convey ideas to colleagues.”
