Belfast Titanic Diagnostic Experience - MGMT 44672
When we hear the word Titanic, we think epic disaster. It took just 37 seconds to change the meaning of Titanic from "world class" to "epic disaster."
In the Belfast Titanic Diagnostic Experience, you will dive deep into the 10 decision-making risks every organization and project should assess to avoid their looming icebergs. Learn how companies and organizations can better manage their risks by studying the historic 1912 voyage of the RMS Titanic.
The Titanic was an epic project to build the grandest ship to cross the oceans. Built in the early 19th century, it was the crown jewel of shipbuilding. It defined class — a combination of both fine accommodations and sophisticated technology.
A complex constellation of decisions led to the disaster on that fateful night of April 15, 1912, when the Titanic sunk. No single technology or person was at fault, simply a combination of errors that our organizations could easily make today.
Students will learn how the Titanic was built, launched and cruised to its fate. They’ll learn about the ship, her crew and the fateful maiden voyage. Most importantly, they’ll learn about critical decisions the officers and crew members made along the way. These are the same flawed decisions leaders and managers make into today’s organizations. Students will meet in the same location where the Titanic was designed and built in the Belfast shipyards. Students will walk across the street from the Belfast Titanic Hotel to the internationally acclaimed exhibit, Titanic Belfast.
