Abstract

Unless the question of decision making is encouraged disasters can occur. Several examples of bad decisions which have been compounded by a lack of dissent are outlined – from President Reagan′s “Irangate” scandal to the Ford Pinto to Coca‐Cola′s failed “New Coke”. Eight recommendations are made for encouraging dissent in decision making.
