  1. Did you use your team contract for Everest 2? Why or why not? Do you think writing the contract made a difference to your team’s performance and outcomes?
  2. Describe how your team organised themselves to participate in Everest 2. Did you make any changes from Everest 1? If yes, what changes did you make?
