Javier Soto - Expert for Project Management on Solar Impulse
A background in Mechanical Engineering, a Master Degree in Computation and Simulation combined with a-10-year experience in development for several international corporations in defence, automotive and consumption goods sectors provided him with perfect skills required to manage the most challenging project: Solar Impulse.
"During the Across America Mission I joined the Solar Impulse team at the airbase of Payerne to analyse the strategies and methods applied by each team involved in the flight operations. My job is to improve the procedures and guarantee the success of the final mission: to fly around the world.
As a Project Manager for the round-the-world tour, I have to adapt the standard management approach to match the special features of a flight around the whole planet performed with a complete innovative and experimental aircraft. Goal definition, stakeholder analysis, risk assessment, mission organization, phase plan, resources and cost control…Every single task needs to be customized to the peculiarities of this ground-breaking project."
