After the Columbia Accident Investigation Board found NASA's history and culture contributed to the loss of the Shuttle, the agency embarked on a plan to transform organizational and safety culture. Behavioral Science Technology, Inc. (BST) of Calif. was selected to help NASA develop and implement a plan for changing the agency-wide safety climate and culture. The BST assessment, which includes input from an employee survey conducted in February, and implementation plan was submitted to NASA in March.
