Teamwork is considered a fundamental element of organizational success in the 1990s. Presents a method of evaluating the effectiveness of an outdoor workshop as a tool to speed the development of study groups (called learning teams) in an MBA programme. Two three‐day residential outdoor workshops are evaluated that were conducted with two different MBA classes over consecutive years. The results presented indicate that such workshops can accelerate the development of teams. In addition, the evaluation methodology used is suggested as a significant contribution to the currently poor standard of measurement applied to such activities.
