The purpose of this qualitative study was to discover how Canadian emergency management professionals design their exercises and the common elements in the exercise design practice. Academic literature and practice guidance on exercise design was reviewed to identify themes in how exercises are designed. Survey and interview methods were used to analyze how current emergency management professionals design their exercises. Five key functional phases in the exercise design process were identified, along with additional considerations that need to be attended to when designing exercises. To date, limited research has been conducted on how professionals design exercises and the findings from this study help to address that gap.
