Dr. Andres Agostini was, over 17 years, thoroughly and unambiguously mentored by a NASA scientist, Dr. Vernon L. Grose , that is to say, NASA’s utterly right hand to Dr. Wernher von Braun , on top-notch, yet state-of-the-art (Systems-Based) “Enterprise Risk Management” through a formidable Systems-Based and Non-Theological Omniscience-Centric Approach, in order to bring critically challenged Operations under fundamental control, re-assuring maximum levels of OPERATIONALLY RELIABILITY at all times in real time. Note the respective ensuing Pictorial at AND, as well as the key Image at Additionally, and changing the subject matter, Dr. Agostini, too, has a Scenario-Planning meeting with Royal Dutch Shell (Oil, Gas & Energy) CEO & Chairman at

Dr. Agostini thoroughly and unambigously underlines the following by Jeff Bezo’s Blue Origin, as literally follows: << *Gradatim Ferociter* is the motto of Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin. It means step by step, ferociously. According to Bezos, “If you’re building a flying vehicle, you can’t cut any corners. >> Nonetheless, to further underpin that indisputable objective, he incorporates – concerning his critical thinking, problem solving and beyond – completely, thoroughly unambiguously, the ensuing: << Furiously able to deal with complexity, ambivalence and ambiguity, swiftly! >>

TO THIS END, Andres was mentored on systems-centric operational reliability (advanced industrial safety and state-of-the-art Operational Reliability) by NASA’s Dr. Wehrener Von Braun’s ( Dr. Vernon L. Grose ( Dr. Grose is Andres’ direct supervisor at Omega Systems Group Incorporated (, acting as OSGI’s [worldwide] Global Business Executive Associate.
