"Leading a Team to the Top of Mount Everest"

Interview with the author of a Harvard B-School case. (And there's a link to a short video about the case.)

What does it take to successfully lead a team to the top of the highest peak in the world? First-year MBA students find out as they participate together in "Everest: A Leadership and Team Simulation." Professor Amy Edmondson talks about the choice to use Mount Everest as the backdrop for this business management exercise, designing the simulation, and what students learn about teamwork along their way up the mountain.
