NASA CKO to Host a Special Masters with Masters Interview with GRC’s Rickey Shyne

Glenn’s Director of Research and Engineering Dr. Rickey Shyne to sit down with NASA CKO Dr. Ed Hoffman.

On Tuesday, January 19, 2016, Dr. Ed Hoffman, NASA Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO), will interview Dr. Rickey Shyne, Director of Research and Engineering at NASA’s Glenn Research Center (GRC).

In 1984, Dr. Rickey J. Shyne began his career at NASA’s John H. Glenn Research Center.  Shyne was appointed to the Senior Executive Service (SES) in August 2005 and then to the Director of Research and Engineering position in February 2014.  He is currently responsible for leading and managing Glenn’s research and development competencies in propulsion, communications, power, materials and structures for extreme environments. A native of Dayton, Ohio, he received his Bachelor of Science degree from Tennessee State University, Nashville, Tennessee, and a Master of Science degree from the University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio, both in mechanical engineering; he later earned his Doctor of Philosophy degree in engineering science with a concentration in fluid/thermal sciences from the University of Toledo.

Shyne, in his position at Glenn Research Center, leads a staff of well over 1,000 scientists, engineers, and administrative staff in support of NASA’s aeronautics and space missions.  Shyne provides leadership, counsel, direction, and support to meet the development objectives of projects and programs that are central to all of NASA.  Shyne will share his insights from his experiences leading multi-discipline teams while leading by infusing knowledge and lessons learned of past project challenges and accomplishments for assuring mission success. Hoffman and Shyne will discuss best and leading practices essential to design, development, operations, and integration of successful work within programs at the heart of NASA’s missions.

Masters with Masters video interviews offer fresh insights, promote reflection and open sharing, and serve as a learning resource for NASA’s technical and administrative workforce. Masters with Masters demonstrate the Academy’s ongoing efforts to cultivate, across the Agency, a cohesive community of project and program management and engineering practitioners who value and promote the free and open exchange of knowledge, lessons learned, and leading practices.

To attend in person this Masters with Masters event beginning at 10:30 a.m. on January 19, 2016, please contact Kathy Clark.  The series of Masters with Masters events—a total of three events scheduled for the month of January at GRC—will be made available with other archived Masters with Masters on APPEL’s YouTube Channel.
