Operational Gaming: An International Approach focuses on various research on this method of systems analysis. The text points out the value of this method in decision making, planning, and in the implementation of policies. The book presents a survey that highlights the connection of experimental gaming, game theory, and operational gaming. The value of gaming as a balancing method in assessing multifaceted computer models, most notably about their assumptions on human behavior, is noted. The book also offers an overview of gaming in other countries, such as Bulgaria, Soviet Union, and Japan, and discusses the international transfer of games, taking into consideration the variance in the transfer processes in every economic system. Some of those identified as affecting the international transfer of games include currencies, tax regulations, and institutional differences. The text also highlights the value of operational gaming, the promotion of its use, and how international cooperation is valuable in its advancement. The book can serve as a reference for those involved in decision making and implementation of policies.
