Strategy is often thought of and designed in cycles of 1-3 years. Effective strategists however are able to balance and reconcile the demands of the big picture as it has evolved over decades, with pressing operational considerations; and long term trends with short and medium-term decisions. This session discusses NASA’s development and journey of change through the evolution of human exploration of space, with particular attention on the strategic challenges that have to be addressed when the external environment changes. These include accomplishing large-scale organizational change, developing competencies in new directions, dealing with vexing internal and external politics, and maintaining a viable position with challenging stakeholders.

We are delighted to welcome Steven A. González from NASA to provide his insights into how NASA continue to accomplish many great scientific and technological feats in air and space
