MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

Several big name organizations in different fields such as NASA and British Petroleum have gone through cycles of disasters followed by a focus on safety before relapsing back into nonchalance. In NASA’s case the explosion of the Challenger was followed by stringent safety methods being adopted. Also safety personnel were given greater importance before launch. Yet with the lapsing of time, this got forgotten in the urge towards meeting newer targets, so the next accident happened with Columbia. Even in pharmaceutical companies such cycles have been noticed. That is because organizations give greater emphasis to   and marketability than safety. This apathy needs to change as organizations need to embrace the fact that safety concerns are not the prerogative of one department alone but something of deep concern to all stakeholders.
