Description

Reviews

This is the first book to analyze NASA's post-Apollo attempt at change, and may actually be the first analysis of any large government agency's attempt at change through cost control. It contains an extensive collection of program cost drivers and lessons learned which are pertinent to a broad range of applications. Where Do You Go After You've Been to the Moon? should be of interest to anyone involved in organizational and management change; cost identification, mitigation and control; and the impact of culture and bureaucracy on NASA's way of doing business.

"Hoban has succeeded in putting together a well-written and interesting analysis of NASA bureaucracy and culture of the 1970s and 1980s. The book may be history, but its main message-that we can learn from history, especially its mistakes and failures-is as current as ever." -- Mark Williamson, Earth Space Review, Vol. 7, No. 2, 1998
