This summary will revolutionize the way you think about, exploit, compensate for, and correct your organization’s strengths and weaknesses, and give you the power to win by thinking like the enemy.

Red teams are used widely in both the public and private sector. They are comprised primarily of fearless skeptics and those assuming the role of saboteurs who seek to better understand the interests, intentions, and capabilities of institutions or potential competitors.

Red teaming, including simulations, vulnerability probes, and alternative analyses, helps institutions in competitive environments to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses, challenge assumptions, and anticipate potential threats ahead of the next special operations raid, malicious cyber attack, or corporate merger. But not all red teams are created equal; in fact, some cause more damage than they prevent.

In our summary of Red Team, national security expert Micah Zenko, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, reveals the best practices, most common pitfalls, and most effective applications of red teams.

Red teaming can be applied to any organization, and executed correctly they can yield impressive results. But red teams are only as good as leaders allow them to be, and this summary shows not only how to create and empower red teams, but also what to do with the information they produce.

This summary will revolutionize the way you think about, exploit, compensate for, and correct your organization’s strengths and weaknesses, and give you the power to win by thinking like the enemy.
