Great Expectations

“When I got there, I discovered that the controller they had hired when they bought this plant had not lasted a week. He had said, ‘No, this is over my head.’ Then they had hired another one on the 1st of December, and he had lasted two weeks. I came in at the end of January. Well, the difference was that I had moved from Kingsport (Tennessee) to Savannah, so I had to figure out how to make this thing work.
“I started reading everything that I could, whether it was the software operations manual or whatever it was, to try to help me improve my skills and my knowledge so that I could make this thing work. I didn’t look at it as anything other than ‘This is an exciting challenge.'” –Roy Austin
