Organizational learning at NASA : the Challenger and Columbia accidents by Julianne Mahler( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Just after 9:00 a.m. on February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia broke apart and was lost over Texas. This tragic event led, as the Challenger accident had 17 years earlier, to an intensive government investigation of the technological and organizational causes of the accident. The investigation found chilling similarities between the two accidents, leading the Columbia Accident Investigation Board to conclude that NASA failed to learn from its earlier tragedy. Despite the frequency with which organizations are encouraged to adopt learning practices, organizational learning--especially in public organizations--is not well understood and deserves to be studied in more detail. This book fills that gap with a thorough examination of NASA's loss of the two shuttles. After offering an account of the processes that constitute organizational learning, Julianne G. Mahler focuses on what NASA did to address problems revealed by Challenger and its uneven efforts to institutionalize its own findings. She also suggests factors overlooked by both accident commissions and proposes broadly applicable hypotheses about learning in public organizations."--Publisher's website

Bureaucracy in crisis : Three Mile Island, the shuttle Challenger, and risk assessment by Maureen Hogan Casamayou( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2020 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How bureaucracies perceive and respond to technological risk is the subject of this study in organizational theory. The author offers evidence from primary sources such as the testimony of agency officials; agency memoranda; and extensive interviews in Congress, the bureaucracy, and the White House to explain the organizational failures leading to the Three Mile Island and Challenger accidents. She examines the implications of these organizational failures in terms of how organizations communicate about and cope with potential risks to public safety-in hopes of avoiding such disasters in the future

Women's Leadership Roles and Washington Internships by Maureen Hogan Casamayou( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to explore the value of experiential education in the context of Washington internships and to consider the importance of role mentoring for female students in political science. The central question for this paper is whether the presence of female leadership role models and mentors in Washington internship programs offer more advantages (such as better job opportunities, a greater job satisfaction, and greater personal growth) for female students than if such students had interned with male leadership role models and mentors. To approach this question requires an examination of the nature of role models and mentors in Washington internships as these relate to the issue of gender inequity in female education. The document considers experiential education in general including a brief history and examination of its various forms. In particular it examines the purported theoretical goals of internships and then reviews some of the typical internship programs in Washington, D.C. The paper is structured as a speculative inquiry that raises more questions than it answers. The paper argues that female students arrive with documented disadvantages from the coeducational system. Although experiential education, and internship in particular, are valuable for all students, the structure of the internship and the internship with a woman leader, appears to address some very specific needs of the female student. Placing young women in a professional environment with other successful women will maximize opportunities for gender specific role modeling and mentoring based on shared experiences. (DK)
