Guiding Rocket Science with Passion, Purpose, and Team
Rocket science is easy, it is the getting it done that is hard. To be successful, teams must bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and implementation with passion, purpose, and a great team. These three attributes transcend domain knowledge and reach into the heart of any project that delivers on tangible goals. While launching a product may have a completely different connotation among industry, the means and the how of success relies on the innovative aptitude of people and team. This paper examines winning strategies related to a series of recent rocket flights and relates them to a more general winning strategy regarding engineering productivity.
