Barriers to Innovation Video_NASA Internal Quality Project

I heard about this on NPR's All Things Considered This Morning.  I watched it and thoroughly enjoyed viewing it.  It's a little dry and wee bit amateurish but it has some solid points about management style crimping / obstructing innovative thinking and inclusion within an orgaznization.

It makes points regarding following procedures at the expense of finding effective, improved methods of getting the job done.  This of course is especially relevant given the extremely high stakes nature of space flight amidst crushing organizational oversight leading to disasters in the space program.

Watch and see how it applies to your organiztion.  How can you improve your style and be more open to change?
