The simulation entails decision making processes, which must be effectively executed in order to maximise team efficiency and attain set goals. The simulation involves ascending towards the summit of Mount Everest along with other team members, each with predefined roles. The interdependent nature of the task requires members to work in collaboration to achieve goals and later evaluate the outcome and the shortcomings that may have hindered success. This report explores communication, leadership and groups and teams as themes for examining the outcomes of the task, as well as determining what implications this experience holds for future teamwork based activities.

The level of effectiveness and efficiency of communication amongst team members can contribute to success or failure in the task. The Everest simulation was one such group task that required all team members to engage in effective communication in order to plan and execute the task. To maximise the outcome, it was necessary to choose the correct form of communication at different stages of the task. In the planning stage we used both face-to-face and mobile…
