Quality Assurance is all about controlling variation in the midst of science and human behavior. We have outcomes we want, but sometimes take quirky paths to get there.
We explore this with help from Dr. Lamont Lindstrom's and "Cargo Cults," a name attributed to social movements from Melanesian Islanders, and scientists who embraced rituals to improve their research.
We are also joined by Defense Analyst, Dr. Tina Elie, and Neuroscientists Drs. Michael Long and Robert Froemke on this journey to understand and perhaps embrace rituals!
