The heart of the Mars Surface Rover activity is found in the leadership roles. These roles were specifically designed to demonstrate the typical leadership approaches. The specific behaviors were derived from the six sets of skills, including Communication, Thinking, Administration, Influence, Interpersonal, and Change Management.
Leaders have a spanning and networking function, internal and external to the organization (Barry, 1992). Leaders are an information conduit between employees and outside individuals and groups. They act as a source of technical and company information, which helps people to solve their own problems. Resource acquisition and the leader’s attention to detail are other important leadership skills.
Mars Surface Rover is a leadership experience where new or experienced leaders learn the concept and benefits of collaborative leadership. Using K’NEX® pieces to construct a Rover, the simulation focuses on the vital skills of communication, decision-making, influence, change management and more.
