What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"For those who have long sought a solid but relevant team training experience, Lost in Cyberspace surfaces. It shows how to contribute to and take part in group decision-making across geographic distance and different time zones. Unlike other simulations where location (the desert, the Arctic) stretches credibility for all but the most intuitive audiences, Lost in Cyberspace delivers best practices for teambuilding in a common business setting-the virtual meeting-in just a few hours."
— George Smart, CEO, Strategic Development, Inc.
