Lesson Learning at NASA (video)

An interesting video on the history and development of lesson learning at NASA

"One of the challenges of a project based organisation is that people work on a mission, and when it ends, you want to get onto the next good work; opposed to an institution working on the same thing for decades and can accumulate knowledge - on a project you can't do that"


“When people thought about lessons learned, they usually thought about failures…let’s sit down and talk about what went wrong. Now, as project managers and designers are starting up a new spacecraft or a new design, they need to look to the past and look to other places for what can they incorporate into a design to make it better, to improve upon it.”
