December 28, 2015

By Amaury Murgado

After 15 minutes of work to free the transport stuck on the tracks, an eight-car commuter train carrying 90 people rounds the bend and slams into the turbine, derailing four of the eight cars. At least 60 people are injured. You are the only supervisor available that day.

Your Leadership Roles  

November 17, 2015

By Amaury Murgado
