In March 2003, the US-led coalition forces led war against Iraq. After a few months, President George W. Bush declared “Mission Accomplished.” But five years later, in 2008, the United States and other coalition forces in Iraq remain and face increasing violence and victims. The U.S. death rate is about 4,000 people during Iraqi deaths due to conflicting sources are estimated 150000-1033000.

The central idea of ​​this theory is that, although the success / failure dichotomy of organizational performance evaluation is simple and as a result, appealing, organizational life does not always correspond with these categories.
