For this assignment you will need to read the Challenger Case Study that is posted below this assignment. You will also need to read chapter 8 Group Processes in your text.
Consider the events leading up to the Challenger Disaster and briefly outline what you believe were the fundamental problems in the decision making process. Next, reflect on your readings from the textbook. Make some connections between some of the key concepts presented in the chapter (e.g., Groupthink, deindividuation, communication flaws) and the way that decisions were made to go ahead with the Challenger launch. Finally, synthesize your learning and make some suggestions to improve future decision making processes. Please, be original and do not search suggestions made by other groups and organziations. Only original work will receive a grade. (Approximate length: 500 words)
