The saga of a Swedish warship

We can learn from history and every day situations for our work.

Sweden 1626. King Gustav II. Adolf orders four ships to strengthen the naval force. One of them is now called Vasa. Two years later this ship sinks on its maiden voyage on August 10th, 1628. After 333 years under water it was salvaged.

Today millions of people visit the ship Vasa in its museum. I am one of them. And the ship and its history taught me many a lesson about my work, some of which I want to share. 

You will learn a bit about the warship and what we can learn from history.
