Mark E. Meaney INTRODUCTION On January 28, 1986, Jerald Mason of Morton
Thiokol asked his vice- president of engineering to think like a manager and not
like an engineer. Robert Lund, the engineer, acquiesced, and a few hours later,
millions watched in horror as the space shuttle Challenger blew up in the Florida
sky, killing all seven astronauts on board. The pressure had been tremendous.
NASA wanted to launch the shuttle. Congressional support for the shuttle
program ...

They urged Mason to reconsider. He reexamined the evidence and decided the
rings should hold at the expected temperature. Joseph Kilminster, Thiokol's vice-
president for shuttle programs, was ready to sign a launch approval, but only if
Lund approved. Lund was now all that stood in the way of launching. Lund's first
response was to repeat his objections. But then Mason said something that made
him think again. Mason asked him to think like a manager rather than an
engineer.

It is not necessary for them to have a degree in engineering or to have worked as
a hands-on engineer. However, it is advantageous for project managers to think
like an engineer. An education and background in engineering allows project
managers to understand more of what is going on and the consequences of
decisions being made. Thinking like an engineer allows project managers to
create a logical sequence of steps that yield a completed project. Thinking like an
engineer is ...

We take on many roles in our lives, and living a role means coming to think in a
certain way—as a parent, say, or a lawyer, or an engineer. What marks engineers
off are the special knowledge and skills they must come to have, what they need
to learn to think like an engineer. These are norms of engineering. No one can be
an engineer without learning them, and we properly criticize a failure to track the
consequences of a change, for instance, as in the Hyatt Regency walkway ...

But then Mason said something that made him think again. Mason asked him to
think like a manager rather than an engineer. (The exact words seem to have
been, “Take off your engineering hat and put on your management hat.”) Lund
did so and changed his mind. On the next day the shuttle exploded during liftoff,
killing all aboard. An Oring had failed.2 Should Lund have reversed himself and
approved the launch? In retrospect, of course, it seems obvious that he should
not have.
