Friday, June 23, 2023, 9:05 AM - 9:35 AM

Learn how to gain a better understanding of workforce requirements in a dynamic work environment, and strategically manage uncertainty with scenario planning.

NASA is a mission-driven organization. The effective and efficient deployment of the workforce is critical to position NASA for success now and in the future. NASA manages its numerous, complex missions in a full cost environment where mission programs fund required civil service labor. This budget environment promotes agility over traditional position-based structures in government. NASA workforce demand, including size and composition, reflects resources best suited to meet mission programmatic requirements within assigned budget levels.

This session will explore:

  • Overview of the NASA workforce and budget environment
  • The drivers of workforce demand
  • Managing uncertainty while maintaining capability.
