A fundamental prerequisite for becoming an effective manager is being able to understand how one’s decisions will affect others, be interpreted by others, and meet the objectives of the organization. This paper presents an experiential activity using mousetraps and role specific decision making to help students become aware of the different perspectives different levels of management view problems and use strategy and management styles to solve problems. In addition, students develop insights regarding their own decision making processes and that of others from completing a brief strategy and team effort activity.
