EN This article describes the process of recognising and acquiring new capabilities in the frame of operational planning process. It refers to the changes in the operational environment which can be observed nowadays. Educating senior officers is a process which requires proper tools, techniques, methods and approach. War Studies University tries to respond to these appearing needs in the field of operational planning process, especially in understanding the operational environment. The article looks at the elements of this process. Implementing the design thinking may possibly be an offer that has to be tested. A general overview of the testing model is the aim of the second part of this article. A description of the experimental model includes control and experimental group, dependent and independent variables. Additionally, selected tools are presented. The conduct of the pilot research to verify methods and the way of conducting the experiment is also predicted. The article also refers to the problems of cultural adaptation of the scenario. First of all, the scenario has to be of complex context. This is the consequence of used typology of the operational environment. In the Cynefin framework, environment is divided into four types: simple, complicated, complex and chaotic. The article underlines the meaning of the research concerning the design thinking, as a divergent approach, in the process of implementing this into operational planning.
