Abstract This resource review focuses on “Leadership and Team Simulation: Everest V2” released by Harvard Business Publishing. The review describes the simulation’s story line of a commercial team expedition climbing to the summit of Mount Everest along with the simulation’s architecture and key features. Building on Wright and Gilmore’s (2012) finding that introductory management courses are underpinned by the threshold concept that management is a practice informed by theory, the review explains how the Everest Team Simulation can be implemented in these courses to help novice students understand the threshold concept. The review concludes by outlining the strengths and limitations of the Everest Team Simulation for teaching threshold concepts compared to more specialized business simulations.
