Chapter 11 Excerpt:

“The second reading assignment was a fifteen-page report on the Hubble telescope mirror project. Written by Robert S Capers and Eric Lipton and titled, “Hubble Error: Time, Money, and Millionths of an inch.” In this excellent article, the authors demonstrate what can happen when Project Management runs amuck. The results were hundreds of millions over budget, many years of delayed delivery, and a flawed mirror launched in April, 1990.”
