Sinopsis: The book offers important insight relevant to Corporate, Government and Global organizations management in general. The internationally recognised authors tackle vital issues in decision making, how organizational risk is managed, how can technological and organizational complexities interact, what are the impediments for effective learning and how large, medium, and small organizations can, and in fact must, increase their resilience.

  • Includes contributions from those involved in the Investigation Board report into the incident.
  • Tackles vital issues such as the role of time pressures and goal conflict in decision making, and the impediments for effective learning.
  • Examines how organizational risk is managed and how technological and organizational complexities interact.

  • Questions our eagerness to embrace new technologies, yet reluctance to accept the risks of innovation.
  • Offers a step by step understanding of the complex factors that led to disaster.

Book Description: Tragedies like the Columbia disaster are distressing reminders that things can go wrong in large, highly regarded organizations. Although we embrace new technologies eagerly, we are reluctant to accept the risks of innovation. Moreover, some technologies and organizations may be too complex to control effectively. What makes some organizations more prone to accidents? Do the very measures taken to increase safety contribute to accidents? Can societies, organizations, and individuals learn from failures and reduce risks?Against this backdrop, Professors William H. Starbuck of New York University and Moshe Farjoun of York University have invited diverse experts to contribute insights about the Columbia accident and the organizational lessons it suggests. This book thus presents many viewpoints on the complex behavioral factors that led to disaster.
