I had seen a draft of it before it was official but I didn't realize the official one was available online. Thanks for sharing

FWIW, the Connections UK 2018 conference was structured along the same lines as the guide, unsurprising given the drafters of the guide are core figures in the Connections UK world. I viewed alot of this as "for additional reading" when thinking about the guide.

Also, Graham Longley-Brown's Successful Professional Wargames: A Practitioners Handbook was delayed as they re-tacked to the guide...but it in some ways can also be viewed as a sibling of the MODUK document.
