Product management is an important function in software development organizations. A product manager conceives and defines new products. His or her task is to understand the market incl. important customers, to develop a product vision from that understanding, to translate it into product requirements, define those requirements on a by-feature basis and work with engineering to ensure these features are properly realized in the product under development.
The course can be taken in two variants. The 5 ECTS version combines class discussions, student presentations, and business cases.
The 10 ECTS version adds a project to the 5 ECTS version. The project is provided by an industry partner, who has a need to understand a market and a product opportunity. Student teams will assess the market opportunity, develop a product specification, and make a final presentation to the industry partner. The available projects will be presented at the beginning of the course.
Class is run as a block from 9am noon on Tuesday morning. For the schedule see
