Growing up, I rarely had to look for guidance. On my first job outside of home, for instance, I learned the value of workmanship. It was the summer before I started seventh grade, and like many young men at that age, I got my first taste of the working world by mowing lawns.
By Dr. Alexander Laufer Learning from Experience I was confused and didn’t know how to react when Jim Carroll, a highly regarded figure in the construction industry, proudly presented me with his “Nine Elements for Project Success,” the product of two years arduous labor.
By Dr. Edward Hoffman I sat mesmerized the other evening listening to a discussion about the space program. The event was sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution. A panel of prominent media insiders was sharing stories of the Space Race and the Apollo dramas that unfolded with it.
