Presentation: Averting Catastrophe & Creating Miracles - A Rocket Scientist’s Everyday Guide to Risk and Opportunity Management.
Experience a paradigm shift in the way you think. Anyone who believes that raising a child is less challenging than designing a human-rated space capsule probably hasn’t raised a child well. And while you may not need to write your own “Risk and Opportunity Management Plan for Little Suzy” in order to be a successful mom, there are innovative aerospace techniques that can make any of your endeavors more successful.
In the design and operations of highly-complex systems (such as human space flight to Mars), it is essential for engineers and management to be fully aware of inherent boundary conditions that limit the safety or performance of their creations. The US Government and the big aerospace companies already have their own guides, manuals, and handbooks detailing corporate strategies to deploy internal risk management practices; however, these core principles can be equally applicable to a vastly larger audience.
Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a small business owner, a college student, or an aerospace executive still striving to perfect your risk management implementation, this presentation will help you harness the power of risk and opportunity management.
Expert Speaker: With 18 years accumulated experience, Bo Folsom's aerospace career spans launch vehicle, spacecraft, and human space flight efforts, including five years as a design engineer for a variety of Delta rocket configurations as well as Program Manager for the launch of NASA’s Extreme UltraViolet Explorer spacecraft aboard a USAF Delta II launch vehicle. Since 1997, Bo's unique specialization as an innovator in the field of Risk & Opportunity Management (employed by the likes of McDonnell Douglas, Boeing, and Northrop Grumman under contract to government and commercial entities) contributed to such notable projects as the Orbital Space Plane, Crew Exploration Vehicle, 3rd Gen GPS, and the Delta IV/Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle. Currently, Mr. Folsom is authoring the definitive book on the subject of Risk and Opportunity Management.
