Common Denominators: The Shared Habits of NASA’s Top Managers and Systems Engineers

The driving idea behind NASA’s Virtual Project Management Challenge is to identify the strategies and tactics that individuals, teams, and organizations can use to maximize mission success in the project-based workplace. Each time we highlight a project or share lessons learned, we also provide our viewers with helpful insights and actionable advice to elevate their performance. APPEL Knowledge Services has produced three sessions of the VPMC that were focused on key habits of people in pivotal roles: project managers, systems engineers and program managers. These sessions continue to be especially popular, having been viewed more than 5,000 times. In this VPMC session we will look back on all three of our “7 Habits” sessions to identify the overarching themes and meta-habits as well as to provide additional resources viewers can use to improve performance.
