When I saw the movie and read the book, “The Martian”, I couldn’t help think that the main character, NASA, JPL, and the Chinese leveraged agility to get Mark Watney back to Earth. I want to expose how an open mindset and flexibility led to collaboration, working solutions, and reacting to reality. This session explores how decisions were made, interactions, failure points, risks, timing, success and how this applies to software projects. Warning: Spoiler alert.
