A short film from The Outer Edge looking at The Normalisation of deviance. Well worth a watch!
The Normalisation of Deviance by John Paul Edgington is not the type of short film you’d tend to expect from Cold Mountain Kit. The reason we’ve selected it for the site is it’s relevance to anybody who climbs or in fact enjoys the wilderness. We have all experienced at least some minor epics and using the ideas from JP’s video it can be interesting to dig into what actually happened, why and how we can prevent it happening next time.
If you’d like to know more about this subject or book onto one of JP’s workshops then check out his website The Outer Edge.
