Rickover Quote … The Facts

Rickover Quote

A Quote from Admiral Rickover about the Facts…

Sit down before facts with an open mind.

Be prepared to give up every preconceived notion.

Follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss Nature leads, or you learn nothing.

Don’t push out figures when facts are going in the opposite direction.

Admiral Rickover (actually Captain Rickover in 1947)

Summit Rickover Session

Mark Paradies will present “How Admiral Rickover Built the First High-Reliability Organization” at the 2023 Global TapRooT® Summit.

Mark Paradies, the speaker for this session, was interviewed by Admiral Rickover, served on two nuclear-powered ships, was qualified as an “Engineer” by NAVSEA 08 (the headquarters Nuclear Navy organization), and has studied Rickover’s methods for decades. Don’t be misled by academic studies of high-reliability organizations (performed by people who have never achieved high reliability). These high-reliability key factors are from someone who has been there, paid the price, and done that.
