Published in: 1980

Abstract

The case study attempts to illustrate two phenomena which are commonly associated with modern technological projects: 1) the starting and stopping of a major innovative project dependent on Government funds 2) the difficulty that must face those responsible for the "go" and "stop" decisions in collecting the essential facts on which to base their judgement. The case is presented in the form of an account of events by Professor Laithwaite, followed by a commentary by Mr. J. Wilson, a technical writer, which in turn is commented upon by Professor Laithwaite.
