Dr. Ed Hoffman is on the podcast this week to discuss how teams and organizations can improve their performance through knowledge, process, and project management. As the former Chief Knowledge Officer for NASA, Ed understands the importance of storing and organizing knowledge for organizations—and he's here to show us all how to improve it in our own companies. Listen in to learn how you can implement some of the same techniques NASA uses to complete projects and send people into outer space.
In this episode, Nick and Ed discuss how leaders can effectively collaborate with their teams and how companies can use technology, data, and the human element in conjunction with one another to achieve maximum performance. The two also discuss the importance of team alignment, and how to enforce good behaviors with your team without punishing them. Ed shares a few fascinating stories from his days at NASA, talks about some of his favorite books, and explains his thoughts on aliens and intelligent life in the universe.
