Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
The Ivey Business School Case Collection has now published by new case study on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. This case has three primary learning objectives. First, it provides students an opportunity to examine how and why catastrophic failures occur. Second, the case highlights several factors that drive enhanced risk-taking in organizational decision-making. Finally, the case enables students to learn about the characteristics of an effective versus ineffective safety culture. The case soon will be available through the Harvard Business Publishing website as well.
