Abstract [en]

Fourteen years ago the concept and structure of “temporary organizations” was demonstrated. The purpose of this article is to examine whether temporary organizations promote groupthink and to assess whether and impedes progress. to assess whether groupthink contributes to uncriticised behaviour that impedes progress. The case of the 1996 Mount Everest tragedy, in which 15 people died, was scrutinized using the published personal accounts of survivors and subsequent research. An argument is developed to show that temporary organizations carry features that induce groupthink. Some remedies are suggested and the importance of the phenomenon is highlighted by the fact that mountaineering deaths and failing projects which are still happening may be caused by it.
