The case documents the epic race to the South Pole, with Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton competing to conquer what was considered the "last frontier on earth for explorers to discover." It allows for a comparison of three very different 'project managers', each with their own leadership styles, battling it out in the same hostile setting. Although these events occurred 100 years ago, the lessons are timeless.
