Item description for The Titans of Saturn: Leadership and Performance Lessons from the Cassini-Huygens Mission by Bram Groen...

This story behind the brilliant success of the Cassini-Huygens mission to the planet Saturn and its moon Titan details a monumental achievement that took scientists, engineers and government agencies from eighteen countries over 25 years to accomplish. The book tells it like it was and offers profound meaning not only for those interested in planetary exploration, but in general for all global leaders and professionals in business and government. The authors present this extraordinary feat of cross-cultural teamwork through the lens of paradoxical logic, demonstrating how a group of highly diverse people can excel globally if inspired by a unifying super ordinate goal and by discovering how success can be attained though the unity of diversity (be it disciplinary or cultural). Titans of Saturn is full of paradoxes: we travel to the far end of the solar system to discover new truths about ourselves. By reaching for the stars, cross-disciplinary and global teams can transform themselves and shape their own culture. The authors draw several important lessons of importance to dealing with the complexity of any large international or multi-disciplinary undertaking.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Titans of Saturn: Leadership and Performance Lessons from the Cassini-Huygens Mission?

Lessons from The Titans of Saturn  Sep 6, 2006
I just finished reading The Titans of Saturn by Bram Groen and Charles Hampden-Turner. It's a powerful read about the multinational team that built the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft that reached Titan, one of the moons of Saturn, after a 15-year voyage. On one hand, the book is a science book, and it details how after seven years of space travel, a spacecraft was able to land safely millions of miles away from its launch point at Cape Canaveral. But there's much more to The Titans of Saturn, and that's the story of how people from vastly different cultures and far-flung continents were able to work together to accomplish such incredible science.

The title of Chapter Four perfectly encapsulates the essence of how a rocket was launched in 1997, orbited Saturn, and landed a probe on Titan in 2005: Competing to cooperate: how thousands of incomparable indivduals fulfilled their common mission. Very good read.
