Markus presented paper on K2 in 2008, at coopetition workshop

K2_2006bAt the same workshop as Virginia, Markus presented a paper co-authored with Marcus Lindahl and Alf Rehn, titled “Coopetition Extremis: On Decision-Making and Subconscious Followership”. The paper was another attempt to explain the behaviour and events that unfolded on K2 in 2008 where 11 climbers were killed. One of the ideas is that it emerged a “spectral leader” that urged people to continue by the feeling of “everyone else is continuing, why should not I?”. The paper will be re-worked for future publications so keep your eyes out.
