Scientific article on the use of serious games for the training of intelligence analysts published by Z&P’s personnel
Alessandro Zanasi, Fabio Ruini and Alessandro Bonzio, from Zanasi & Partners, have published a scientific article on the International Journal of Safety and Security Engineering, titled “Intelligence Analysts’ Training Through Serious Games: The LEILA Project“.
The article takes inspiration from the work carried out during the LEILA project, a research project co-funded by the European Commission (within the context of FP7 programme), running from 2013 to 2015.
LEILA investigated innovative methodologies for the development of the core competencies required for performing intelligence analysis. Building upon an in-depth study of intelligence analysts’ learning needs and inspired by a multitude of disciplines, LEILA developed a set of serious games, embedded into four comprehensive ‘learning experiences’ dedicated to intelligence analysis trainees. While the main target of LEILA is law-enforcement intelligence analysts, the competencies addressed by its learning experiences are potentially relevant to analysts operating across various sectors.
