Project Description

12 Angry Men Analysed Through Organisational Behavioral Theory

The purpose of this work is to analyze the events that occurred in the film, 12 Angry Men, to execute three tasks. The first is to analyze whether the jury made a good decision. The second but related task in that analysis is to evaluate the factors that helped in the process of decision-making (and the ones that impeded it). The factors discussed here include the role of emotions, stereotypes and cognitive biases to name a few. The third and final task is to evaluate the ways in which the film illustrated the significance of sense making in the decision-making process. The overall argument presented here is that a good decision was made because ethical decision-making was employed. Moreover, the strategies some of the jurors (mostly number 8) used in sense making (such as communication, action and retrospection) helped to overcome a number of sweeping generalizations that might have biased the jury to render a guilty verdict.
