Global Thinking, or the Utility of Trivia.
Harris, John S.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v31 n3 p223-39 2001
Suggests the case of the British Westland Lysander P12 Ground Strafer aircraft illustrates the problem of narrow thinking. Claims that had the initial designers approached the problem in a broad way, they would have seen in advance that the project would fail. Concludes the case is instructive as an industrial problem, but it also demonstrates the value of global thinking methodology. (SG)
