Nuclear Energy Leadership: Lessons Learned from U.S. Operators
The nuclear industry has quietly evolved over the past 30 years to become one of the safest and most reliable low-cost producers of electricity.
Mary Jo Rogers's new book, Nuclear Energy Leadership: Lessons Learned from US Operators, provides helpful suggestions as well as useful tools drawn from the best of the nuclear industry. This timely book illustrates with convincing detail and relevant case studies how the lessons from the best nuclear operators can be applied to nonnuclear operations-based organizations to markedly improve production and safety performance. The author draws from a research database on nuclear leaders, supervisors, senior leadership teams and organizations, interviews with numerous nuclear leaders, as well as extensive personal experience assisting in nuclear power plant turnarounds.
With increased pressure on cost of production for fossil generation and oil and gas, readers from the energy and utility industries would greatly benefit from the lessons learned by excellent nuclear operators.
