    03 - Space to Protect: Agile and rapid capability development in the space domain

    03 - Space to Protect: Agile and rapid capability development in the space domain

    Are the larger UK stakeholders in the space domain, such as the Ministry of Defence and some industry primes, lagging behind smaller organisations in the commercial sector in adopting more lean, agile and rapid capability development and acquisition processes? Is the move away from lengthy, procedural, requirements-based and CADMID-derived practises happening too slowly for them to be able to keep pace with smaller competitors or partners? How quickly can this behavioural change happen within such large and well-established organisations? Is it already too late for some and they will never catch up? Find out more on this podcast.

    Presented by Dr. Suzie Imber, Associate Professor in Space Physics for University of Leicester.
