The Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is developed in a partnership between JPL and a large European Consortium (EC) for delivery via ESA to the JWST project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). The four parties have created an effective management and system engineering structure to deal with distributed and international management, system engineering, and testing teams. This paper describes the organizational and team structure created to manage and develop MIRI in an efficient and productive manner. This paper also addresses the challenges and subsequent solutions for merging sometimes disparate cultures and approaches to managing technical programs.
