Police Managers Simulate a Mount Everest Expedition

On July 24, 2013 Dr. Bowman conducted a day long training session as part of the North Carolina Justice Academy's Management Development Program (MDP).

In that session, Dr. Bowman used a Harvard Business School online simulation to help 20 MDP students learn more about leadership, communication, and team effectiveness. In teams of five, the students engaged in a simulated Mt. Everest expedition. The teams were faced with numerous technical and leadership challenges in their attempt to summit the mountain. Not every team member made it to the top and each team learned the value of communication and leadership in balancing individual and team goals. Funding for use of the online simulation was provided by the Center for Excellence in Justice Administration.
