Sample text

Initially I had no plan for a coordinated project entailing a three-case comparison on signals and interpretive work, the title of this paper. My work on intimate relationships and the Challenger case each began as an investigation of a unique substantive question. The only connection I saw between them was that, conceptually, I was treating both the dyad and NASA as organizations. Using analytic induction and other strategies that force the analysis toward differences (Vaughan 1992:195–99), the fact that signals, interpretive work, and mistake were part of the explanation of both projects became apparent to me only midway through the second project.
