Mount Everest Leadership and Team Simulation is a web-based, multimedia multi-user simulation that uses the dramatic context of a Mount Everest expedition to reinforce student learning about leading effective team decision-making processes. The challenge course involves a series of activities that require various degrees of teamwork, problem solving, collaboration, cooperation, and open communications.

Each participant assumes a different role and is given resources and information that his or her team must process effectively to make a series of critical decisions about the timing and execution of hiking along successive camps in its ascent to the summit. The teaching points for the exercise focus on how teams make complex decisions when critical information is distributed unevenly among members and when members have partially conflicting goals.
