NASA JSC Space Shuttle Program
Tacit Knowledge Capture Project

The JSC Space Shuttle Program Tacit Knowledge Capture Project was commissioned by the JSC Chief Knowledge Officer and the Space Shuttle Program Manager.

The effort included twenty interviews with current and former key members of the Space Shuttle Program. The interviews reflect details of critical program decisions, information on management tools and processes, and lessons learned from areas of expertise. The interviews were conducted by the JSC History Office between April and July 2008, at NASA Centers in Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, and Houston.
