The difference in performance between LANL and LLNL

The difference in performance between LANL and LLNL is due entirely to the organizational design and performance of their engineering disciplines. LLNL engineering is strong, active, and self-sustaining. LANL Engineering is haphazard, marginalized and and dependent on individuals.

I am proud of LLNL Engineering, but even if I had great knowledge of LANL Engineering I would not ascribe differences between two complex organizations like national labs to any one thing.

LLNL often feels an existential threat, so perhaps it goes to the line attributed to Samuel Johnson:

"Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully."
