As JPL looks toward the future, it may be helpful to consider how the Lab has evolved over the past 50 years. What were the environmental forces at work, and what were the attitudes and attributes that helped shape the Lab’s response? Are there lessons here for the future?

They’re an effective way to communicate and understand an organization’s culture and can help employees develop a sense of organizational identity. Stories offer an approach different from the more formal lectures, seminars and town halls we have at JPL – they offer another way to be a part of the discussion.Are the stories recorded?
With the storyteller’s permission, we make a videorecording of each story. These are available for viewing from Teresa Bailey, x4-9233, teresa.r.bailey@jpl.nasa.govHow can I participate?
