This memoir of a veteran NASA flight director tells riveting stories from the early days of the Mercury program through Apollo 11 (the moon landing) and Apollo 13, for both of which Kranz was flight director. Gene Kranz was present at the creation of America’s manned space program and was a key player in it for three decades. As a flight director in NASA’s Mission Control, Kranz witnessed firsthand the making of history. He participated in the space program from the early days of the Mercury program to the last Apollo mission, and beyond. He endured the disastrous first years when rockets blew up and the United States seemed to fall further behind the Soviet Union in the space race. He helped to launch Alan Shepard and John Glenn, then assumed the flight director’s role in the Gemini program, which he guided to fruition. With his teammates, he accepted the challenge to carry out President John F. Kennedy’s commitment to land a man on the Moon before the end of the 1960s. Kranz recounts these thrilling historic events and offers new information about the famous flights. What appeared as nearly flawless missions to the Moon were, in fact, a series of hair-raising near misses. When the space technology failed, as it sometimes did, the controllers’ only recourse was to rely on their skills and those of their teammates. He reveals behind-the-scenes details to demonstrate the leadership, discipline, trust, and teamwork that made the space program a success. A fascinating firsthand account by a veteran mission controller of one of America’s greatest achievements, Failure is Not an Option reflects on what has happened to the space program and offers his own bold suggestions about what we ought to be doing in space now.
Psychological instruments for persistence by an Asian-American man This book is a persistence motivation tool. I come from multiple generations of failed bloodlines. I had to learn to persist because repeating the failures of my relatives was never an option for me. I had to ask myself, again and again, so many times, 'how can I keep on going, no matter what?' to tackle and persevere through the most difficult projects that I have taken on. I know that keeping going toward your success, under all conditions and circumstances, is far easier said than done. This book presents some of the most effective and efficient psychological tools for possessing and exercising inordinate patience and persistence that is absolutely required for achieving your greatest aims and highest aspirations. I was hungry and thirsty for my success; in order to get what I wanted, I had to learn to persevere against all odds when my going got impossibly tough. This book contains the very best psychological instruments that I have learned and perfected for gaining and exercising seemingly endless patience and persistence. I know that keeping going, and keeping on trying, when there's no guarantee of success whatsoever, is the strangest thing you can do, but it is the only way to secure your success. Keeping going must be your only option, because giving up will bring only disaster and ruin, not comfort and ease. When you keep on trying, you build better means and find better ways: that is why you must keep on trying. If you don't keep on trying, you'll never end up building the way to your success. In order to secure your success, you must keep going when there's no guarantee of your success whatsoever. - Allen Young an Asian-American man
Bachelor Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1,7, , language: English, abstract: This dissertation studies possible reasons for information technology (IT) project failure or success. In general, projects have a defined goal with clear boundaries and defined resources. They are limited in time, highly complex and run by a specific organisation. In particular, software projects are characterised by complexity, simple modifications, abstraction, technology changes, incomplete requirements and undefined practices. In addition, the environment plays an important role. The key players consist of: senior management, project sponsor, project manager, project team and users. To successfully run projects, a formal methodology is fundamental. Project management involves initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing. The Standish Group has proved that IT project failure is common. The Chaos Report publishes facts on failure every two years. In 2004, 18% of projects in the U.S. failed, 53% were challenged and 29% were successful. The reasons for project failure are related to incomplete requirements, lack of user involvement, lack of resources, unrealistic expectations, lack of executive support, changing requirements and specifications, lack of planning and lack of IT management. These factors were also crucial for the failure of the FBI’s Trilogy project. This project consisted of upgrading the FBI’s hardware and software, their communications network and five most important investigative applications. The Trilogy project was 15 months over schedule, $201.3 million over budget and has never been finished. Other success factors however include user involvement, executive management support, experienced project manager, clear business objectives, minimised scope, clear requirements, standard software infrastructure, formal methodology, reliable estimates and skilled staff. For the successful implementation of Mentec’s AGRESSO Financial Management System in Irish Local Government these issues were extremely relevant. The new system could be distributed to 72 local authorities on plan and within budget. This dissertation theorises a successful IT project process. Whereas formalised project management practices cannot guarantee an effective project, they only provide for better opportunities to reach the goal.
For the first time, a top leadership scholar and a top leadership practitioner explore the true duties, demands, and privileges of leadership. Intellectual sparks flew when Warren Bennis, the “father” of modern leadership studies and Steven B. Sample, one of the most accomplished university presidents in recent history, came together for candid explorations of the forces that shape successful leaders and unsuccessful ones. The Art and Adventure of Leadership, their final collaboration, reveals the profound insights that the authors gained together over the 16 years in which they co-taught one of the most popular leadership courses in America. Here, each brings his own distinct vantage point as they address the mechanics and mysteries of leadership. The result is a unique examination of the journey of great leaders from momentary setbacks to ultimate success. It offers profound lessons on what determines the difference between failure and redemption for leaders. And it illuminates important and overlooked dimensions of great leaders ranging from Winston Churchill to Steve Jobs. Together, they explore why: A mature leader must grasp when it’s healthy to risk failure, and when failure can’t be tolerated at any cost Leadership isn’t for everyone and requires a particular set of skills and competencies that are often glossed over in most management literature To succeed in an uncertain and fast-changing world, a shrewd leader must understand which aspects of human society change—and which aspects never change A mature, wise leader must seek a balance between high-minded ideals and the gritty realities and compromises that leaders face in their daily lives Above all, meaningful leadership remains a matter of character With incredible insight, this book examines why George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and other giants were able to recover from failures, learn resilience, and prepare themselves for their moments of destiny. In so doing, it demonstrates and helps cultivate the leadership skills that you need to create your own most meaningful legacy. The Art and Adventure of Leadership is a unique look at leadership, and a critical resource for the leaders of tomorrow.
