By the very nature of human exploration, whether it be on earth or in space, it brings with it both inherent risk and reward. In 2006, NASA established the NASA Safety Center (NSC) to support the Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) requirements of NASA’s portfolio of programs and projects. The NCS is comprised of four functional offices: Technical Excellence, Knowledge Management Systems, Audits and Assessments, and Mishap Investigation Support.
That same year, three years after the Space Shuttle accident and with the Space Shuttle Program returning to flight, the Technical Excellence Office (TEO) recognized that it needed a corporate safety university in order to ensure the overall competency and credibility of NASA’s safety community, comprised of 3,000 safety engineers geographically dispersed across the entire nation. The vision of the NASA corporate university was “to create the NASA University for Safety and to ultimately become the Harvard and MIT of NASA Safety”. This vision was ultimately coined STEP (NASA’s Safety and Mission Assurance Technical Excellence Program).
At this webinar, you will learn details about the process, strategies and models that the TEO utilized to design, develop and launch STEP, including (but not limited to):
From this webinar, participants will leave with practical, real-world, award-winning corporate university launching strategies and tools that can be applied within their own businesses. Please join us!
