Kennedy Space Center, FL — With the launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour this month, Cadence Management Corporation celebrates seven years as project management training provider to primary NASA contractor, United Space Alliance (USA). Since 2000, Cadence has trained over 1,000 employees across USA operations in Florida and Texas.

“This relationship is about more than teaching project management. It’s about helping those who serve our country’s invaluable mission of space exploration, and in doing so, providing a small service ourselves,” said Cadence President, John Patton. Patton represented Cadence as a VIP observer in the viewing stands for the SS Endeavour launch at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA.

This mission marks more than simply the 119th Shuttle launch. Over two decades after her selection as Christa McAuliffe’s backup in the Teacher in Space program, Barbara Morgan donned her uniform as one of five mission specialists on the flight.

“It was quite an honor to be a part of such a historic event,” said Patton. “We’re proud to be able to lend our expertise to one of the most complex and technically challenging projects in the world.”
