I'd like to thank the entire team that worked on the simulation as well. I always enjoy working with my co-author, Amy Edmondson. The team at Harvard Business Publishing is just terrific, led by Heide Abelli and Nicole Harris (Nicole, in particular, did much of the heavy lifting on the revision). Finally, Michael Bean and his team at Forio do a terrific job of software development.
By the way, for those who are interested, we have been working on a new simulation. We have a fair bit of work left to do, but I'll post details once we are close to completion.
I've posted the official announcement about the Everest simulation from Harvard Business Publishing below, which contains a few details about the upgrades to the simulation.
Harvard Business Publishing is pleased to announce that the Leadership and Team Simulation: Everest V2 is now available. This second release of the team-based simulation combines the proven learning objectives and storyline of the original with an updated user experience for both student and instructor.
- NEW Design—Updated visuals and navigation enhance the look and feel of the simulation while maintaining the principles of the original for continued ease of use.
- NEW Setup Options—Drag and drop functionality and the new auto-assign feature simplify and expedite team and role assignment.
- NEW Teaching Materials—The updated Teaching Note reduces simulation ramp-up time. A new Microsoft PowerPoint deck populated with your specific classroom results provides an effective and efficient tool for a classroom debrief session.
- NEW Performance Tracking—New debrief histograms offer role-by-role comparison of individual goal achievement across teams. Now you can also download results for multiple teams for more powerful results analysis.
