The workshop participants synchronized over 1,000 exercise injects across five events, while ensuring over 486 tasks are performed to meet the training audiences' objectives for the exercise.
"Essentially, injects are pieces which have to be connected like a mosaic, feeding story-lines and creating a common picture for the Headquarters to be trained. Every little element has to be talked through and placed in the correct context to avoid misunderstandings and misconceptions so that the exercise is steered in the right direction," said MAJ Partick Schulze, Team Leader J7 MNC NE, "The MNC NE team put a lot of effort into that, either by writing injects for our own purposes or by contributing to the scripting for other entities."
As indicated by MAJ Schulze, the workshop proved very beneficial, as the partakers had the opportunity to coordinate their efforts in person which made it possible to establish a firm ground for the STJU21 training audiences in October. "The workshop was a total success in two different ways," stated MAJ
Schulze, "Firstly, all participants successfully completed the scripting
for STJU21. Secondly, more than 200 personnel from almost all entities
being part of STJU21 were present."
A lot of additional topics were
discussed, many unknowns identified and a great deal of issues solved.
This direct interaction has been vital and showed one more time how
important people are in the NATO environment, summarized MAJ Schulze.
