A Learning History approach was used to study the processes and outcomes of West Virginia University's inaugural (2013) Solar Decathlon team as it planned and executed its entry to the competition. In this competition, the product must be a house that meets several standards for sustainable management of material and energy resources. This study conceives of the human resources required to produce an entry as a complementary valuable resource that also can be managed more or less sustainably. Applying principles of sustainable management to evaluate the team's process and the transmission of knowledge to future teams, analysis of the experiences and perspectives of five disciplinary team leaders point to changes that could produce a more sustainably managed competition process for future teams.
