SMITHFIELD, R.I. - The high-stakes decisions needed to reach the summit of the world's tallest peak are at the heart of an award-winning interactive teaching tool created by Michael A. Roberto, Trustee Professor of Management in Bryant University's College of Business.
"Leadership and Team Simulation: Everest V2″ draws in part from Roberto's research on the failures of a May 1996 Mt. Everest climb that resulted in five mountaineers' deaths. Co-written with Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School, the online simulation is a hands-on study in leadership and group dynamics. The players are organized into teams of five climbers: an experienced leader; a physician; a photographer; a marathoner; and an environmentalist.
