Crew Resource Management
The literature on the development and early days of CRM is abundant (Wiener, Kanki & Helmreich, 1993; Hayward & Lowe, 1993; Orlady & Foushee, 1986; Cooper, White & Lauber, 1979). Readers interested in early CRM development, implementation and practice may refer to these and many other publications. However, it is noteworthy that literature on more recent developments since the late 1990s is more scattered. This chapter does not discuss CRM in itself, but it rather looks at some recent developments and assesses some of the issues which might affect its future. Such assessment is conducted within the framework provided by a historical review of the evolution of CRM and its associated safety paradigms. The position upon which this chapter builds is quite simple and should not be mistaken. CRM is too valuable a tool to be squandered by misunderstandings, misperceptions,incompetence or plain ignorance.
