Description

A group of friends, keen on mountain climbing, decide to take on a pioneer challenge: to be the first peruvian expedition to climb a snow-covered mountain, more than 8,000 meters high, in the Himalayas. However, to carry out such an ambitious challenge they must confront various aspects and ask themselves several questions; many of them are foreseeable while others emerge during the project's development. For nearly a year and a half, from the time the idea was first conceived to the time it was carried out, several actions, of different nature, came into play: work distribution, training, getting the right gear, finances, communications, marketing, logistics, among others. The case describes this difficult undertaking and the environtment in which it took place. Considering that we are dealing with a highly-demanding sport, we will analyze those topics that can be applied to business situations. We should be able to consider and weigh organizational and administrative matters, as well as those dealing with technology and team work, in the context of a developing country, and in light of situations whose scope is increasingly uncertain.A group of friends, keen on mountain climbing, decide to take on a pioneer challenge: to be the first peruvian expedition to climb a snow-covered mountain, more than 8,000 meters high, in the Himalayas.
