a teamwork laboratory where we run team project simulations called BootCamps. Hundreds of teams have participated in these simulations with us over the last 11 years.

Those who have attended a BootCamp and those who have adopted the best practices of BootCamp consider themselves *booted*. We share our results in books we have authored, speeches and our podcast, The McCarthy Show.
