Location: via Zoom
Member Cost: THB 0.00


It will be shown that organisations “drift” away from the “norm” by accepting unsafe deviations. This is a leadership challenge and their role will be discussed. It will set against a backdrop of a real life case study - the Challenger disaster. NASA is held up as the exemplar of procedural discipline, organisational excellence etc. as they deliver operations in the extreme environment of space. However, over a number of years they allowed people to “drift”, they allowed the normalisation of deviation with catastrophic consequences. The presentation will be wrapped up by getting attendees to think about how this all applies in their own organisations.

Date: Wednesday 1st July 2020

Time: 3.00 - 3.15 pm discussion followed by Q&A

Cost: free of charge 

Open for BCCT members only. Maximum of 10 places. The Zoom meeting link will be sent to you direct one day in advance before the event date.
