I am excited to report that last night the Everest Leadership and Team Simulation V 2.0 (released in July) received the 2011 Massachusetts Innovation and Technology Exchange Award for best eLearning solution. We were absolutely thrilled to earn this honor. According to the MITX website, “The MITX Interactive Awards is the largest and most prestigious awards competition in the country for interactive and web innovations and celebrates the best creative and technological accomplishments emerging from New England.” The awards ceremony took place last night at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston.
As you may know, Professor Amy Edmondson (of HBS) and I developed this simulation and released the original version three years ago. We made a series of enhancements for the V 2.0 release this summer. The product was developed by a terrific team from Harvard Business Publishing and Forio Simulations of California.
