This paper is a case study of a research project in a government laboratory. It follows a protagonist through the inception, selling, and performance of a new field of research. A theoretical framework suggests how the case might be analyzed. The author's conclusion is that managers should establish thresholds at which corrective action is taken, rather than moving with small steps to failure.
