Standardization as a source of innovation: Captain Sullenberger: Dealing with the Unexpected

Professor Michael Roberto's Blog: Captain Sullenberger: Dealing with the Unexpected

In my March 21st blog I made a case that standardization is the source of innovation.  Professor Mike Roberto recently posted a short video(39 seconds) of Captain Sully Sullenberger.  Capt Sullenberger reinforces the notion of standardization as a source of innovation.

For those of you who don't know or may not recall, in 2009 Capt Sullenberger was the pilot of a US Airways aircraft which struck a flock of Canadian geese on takeoff and had catastrophic engine failure as a result.  He successfully ditched the aircraft in the Hudson River and saved the lives of 155 passengers and crew.
