In this video, Nova Space co-founders Joseph Horvath and Christopher Allen discuss the value that coaching can provide to your space program. Learn how digital programs can improve time savings and accountability for your workforce.
The main topics covered on how digital space programs improve training include:
- Accountability in Behavior
- Improve and Track Performance
If you believe your current workforce is sufficiently well educated for today, you are already behind developing your future workforce. Therefore, it is essential to provide your team with the skills to flourish into the future.
Accountability in Behavior
Including a digital space program is an excellent way to keep all your employees accountable for their development.
The skills your employees possess are excellent. However, the goal of developing the future space workforce must remain at the forefront of any workforce manager’s professional development plan.
The program’s tracking aspect allows you to observe how specific employees are improving and performing. Employees who are improving at a faster rate can be identified and placed in positions with more responsibility. Thus, a rewards-based program could help maintain other employees’ motivation in your space development program.
Improve and Track Performance
The process of tracking employee performance can be a time-consuming endeavor. A digital space mentoring program can help facilitate the up-to-the-minute progress of their development.
Observing their progress can enable you to understand where you are in the workforce development process. The interactive program’s tracking software will provide detailed information on the development of both high and low performers on the team as well as assist in identifying subject areas in which your team is struggling or excelling.
Rapid space industry growth means you must have efficient training materials and methods. If you are spending time creating training materials, this means you are not focusing on other aspects of your business.
Although you may have a human resource staff creating training materials, having an already existing space development program will free up time and resources for those staff members to focus on other areas work. Using a pre-existing program will also provide your employees with industry standard knowledge vice a custom training program that may not be relevant to the industry writ large.
This gained efficiency also means you can provide your employees with cross-disciplinary skills. The broader skillset means they can function to improve workflows for teams outside of their specific department.
Our products are scalable and can meet the needs of any organization in the space industry. Therefore, if you are a smaller space enterprise, the programs can be more focused on what is relevant to you. However, as your business grows, the space coaching program can scale to meet your needs.
Space organizations rely on conventional academic standards to fill their talent pipelines with engineers, scientists, technicians, and non-technical professionals. In addition, they support various business functions in the space industry.
Entry-level non-technical employees generally lack a holistic view of the space industry and its many disciplines. Having a complete understanding of the process involved in designing, manufacturing, launching, and operating spacecraft will allow these non-technical employees to bridge the gap between teams within your business.
The lack of a standardized professional development pipeline for space industry employees has resulted in a wide range of knowledge bases across the industry and even within companies. Fundamental knowledge of one’s space organization’s goals, capabilities, and technical practices will reduce internal and external communication barriers.
Nova Space’s professional-development courses help space industry professionals acquire the necessary knowledge and skills so they are set up for success in the space industry now AND in the future.
