Describing how professionals can learn from NASA’s research on assembling a mission-critical team for space travel, Noshir Contractor recently presented a keynote titled “Designing and Keeping Great Teams. Lessons from Preparing for Mars. What Can PLM Professionals Learn from This?”
KEYNOTE: Designing and Keeping Great Teams. Lessons from Preparing for Mars. What Can PLM Professionals Learn from This?
Cooperation is critical in space, and NASA has identified important traits for successful teamwork in anticipation of an upcoming Mars expedition. To help assemble a team for the three-year mission, NASA is working with researchers to develop a predictive model of group performance, one which anticipates conflicts and communication breakdowns based on personality traits. PLM conference presentations often mention the dependency on technology, people, and processes for success, but mostly focus only on the technology. The introduction of disruptive technologies puts even more pressure on the people aspect. This presentation will share research findings on assembling a mission-critical team for space travel that might well apply to setting up your mission-critical team for a multi-year PLM implementation.
