The document itself lists the location and type of all currently-known Hideouts belonging to the Organization in question. This is shown on the right side of the document. It does not show whether any of these Hideouts contains an agent, simply that the Hideout is known to exist and can be visited by Max.
In addition, the document shows all Alliances and Associations this Organization has with other Organizations. Alliances are shown at the top left, Associations at the bottom left.
Reviewing an Organization SummaryEdit
Collecting Additional Organization SummariesEdit
At the start of each Mission, Max only possesses a limited number of Organization Summaries, usually those of the CIA, MI6, Mossad, and two or three others. On lower Difficulty settings, one of the "other" summaries will belong to the Organization behind the current Criminal Plot.
The Organization Summary document is not the most helpful piece of data in Max's arsenal, but it does have its uses.
For one, it is possible to determine Alliances between Organizations thanks to this document. Unfortunately, the true nature of Alliances is currently unclear. It is possible that if you know which Organization is heading the current Criminal Plot, you can narrow down your guesses as to the affiliation of Participants who do not belong to that Organization. In other words, if the Jamaican Gang is heading the current Plot, and they are listed as being Allied with the Tupamaros, it's likely that any Participant who is not a member of the Jamaican Gang will be a member of the Tupamaros. Again, at the moment this link is only suspected, there is currently no hard evidence that this is indeed how the game works.
Another important use for the Organization Summary is to enable you to figure out, at a glance, whether you know the location of important Hideouts belonging to that Organization. For example, let's say you discover that two Participants are members of the FLN, and that one is in London while the other is in Bogota. However, you are not sure whether you know the location of the FLN Hideouts in those cities. One way to check would be to fly there and see for yourself - but travel costs precious time! Instead, check out the Organization Summary for the FLN, and scan the list for the Hideouts in those cities. If you fail to find the ones you're looking for, perhaps it would be best to break into the FLN hideout in the city you're current in, and Hack a terminal for that information.
