Event description
Project Management Leadership Lessons from Developing the Lunar Lander

About this Event

The Lunar Module was the originally discredited breakthrough idea that made it possible to land on the moon 50 years ago. It is an interesting story with many lessons about the challenges faced in the development of the lander.

In this program, we will watch a film on the conception, design, and development of the lander which ultimately took men to the moon. The film illustrates the rewards and frustrations involved in project development and provides techniques to create meaningful solutions to complex challenges. We will discuss the leadership and project management lessons learned and the key components which create an ideal project culture. Attendees will come away with a deeper understanding of the process which leads to successful and engaging development.
