A Critical Analysis of Factors Related to Decisional Processes Involved in the Challenger Disaster.
Gouran, Dennis; And Others
Central States Speech Journal, v37 n3 p119-35 Fall 1986
Analyzes the five factors in combination that appear to account for the mind-set in which the decision to launch the Challenger was made: (1) perceived pressure, (2) rigid conformity to perceived role requirements, (3) questionable reasoning, (4) ambiguous use of language, and (5) failure to ask important relevant questions.
