The race to the South Pole between Roald Amundsen and Robert Scott back in 1911 was not only an epic David and Goliath story, but one of two contrasting project management styles and approaches. Despite this story being over 100 years old there are several critical and important lessons from these expeditions that are still valid today. This presentation will walk through in detail how both of these leaders approached this dangerous and heroic undertaking. It will also highlight their different management styles, their approach to risk and the importance of detailed planning.
