Caving – also known as spelunking in the United States and Canada and potholing in the United Kingdom and Ireland – is the recreational pastime of exploring wild cave systems, while speleology is the scientific study of caves and the cave environment.
Well, spelunking is what we did with Operations Management Professor Fabrizio Salvador, exploring the Valporcuero Caves in Leon, Spain. He says that nobody would like to live a life where everything is known beforehand. Uncertainty allows us to learn and opens up opportunities. It can even be fun – if managed properly!
I fairly battled my way through the cave while Prof. Salvador used the experience to blithely offer a great explanation of how the job of operations management is to specify how we go from A to B with the resources at hand.
I have to confess that the filming of this video, although very interesting, was goddamn tough!! Jumping, diving, rappelling, climbing etc., while filming and trying to make sense of everything… It was all I could do to keep myself from slipping down some rocky slope!!!

P.S: If you want to experience spelunking, try naturocio.
