Watch “Radical Change Management” with Marijke Jorritsma

By mid 2020s we will be sending a spacecraft to Jupiter’s high radiation orbit, so that we can observe Europa, a moon that is believed to have the conditions to support life.

The mission needs to design spacecraft operations processes and software for a team of highly-specialized engineers and scientists distributed around the United States.

For this talk at IxDA‘s Interaction ’19, Marijke Jorritsma tells the story about how a team of UX Designers convinced the Europa Clipper mission to adopt design processes into the design and development of spacecraft operations using “radical change management”. (Download Slide Deck).
