Milgram Experiment about human obedience




Have you ever heard of Milgram experiment?
It's a huge experiment of 1962... and it reveals some dramatical facts.

Reconstitution in a french movie :



Maybe we can link it to the way some managers make their choices. They believe in something cause they've heard information from respected administration about it, wich justify their current choice. So they deploy the solution and if it doesn't work, they continue to invest on it because they need justify what they have already done until now and they can't accept that it might be wrong.

Other example, many times managers don't assume their responsabilities accross partners selection. They took the leader by default only to limit the risk, because if there are problems, they can says : "how could i knew? they're the leaders!"
