NASA Must Change and it Must Change Now

Culture Change at NASA, Wayne Hale's Blog

"According to the creation myth, in the beginning, NASA was full of young, cocky, innovative, hard charging folks who got us to the moon inside a decade. They were brash, confident, and did not suffer fools gladly. If they were worried, they didn't show it. Stories abound of 100+ hour work weeks end to end, almost impossible to believe. Their theme -as posted on the factory walls - was 'waste anything but time'. Going to the moon was the clich for doing the impossible and they were going to be the ones to do it. They were the epitome of risk-taking, innovative, creative, flexible, nimble, achievers."
