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 struggles and challenges faced in the development of the lander. In this program we will watch a movie on the conception, design and development of the lander that ultimately took me to the moon. This video illustrates some of the rewards and frustrations of working on a complex project along with techniques for dealing with them. We will discuss the leadership and project management lessons shown and what makes for a great project culture. Attendees will come away with a deeper understanding of how to make their developments more engaging and successful.
