Columbia Incident Case Study Analysis
Order type: Case Study
For this assessment, reflect on the role that political influence plays in the internal decision-making of a public organization. Read the Columbia Accident case study and materials attached.
Consider the questions that Stillman poses at the end of the case study:
• How did the political environment influence the decision to launch the space shuttle Columbia? Who was involved and who was not?
• What were the sources of the political pressure? Their points of view?
• Who was the most responsible for the decision to launch the shuttle? How can one determine "responsible" or "irresponsible" use of administrative power? And ensure its "responsible" use?
• List the reasons why the "political dimensions" are repeatedly overlooked or ignored?
• Finally, analyze how the unified ethic might speak to this situation.
