This handbook is designed to:

  • offer a series of checklists and prompts for exercise managers.
  • illustrate different aspects of the exercise management process.
  • provide a shared understanding of key concepts, principles, and frameworks.
  • provide consistency in the terminology, management structures, and documentation used in exercise management.
  • provide resources that improve the quality of exercises.
