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. 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 uses business-school-type teaching cases. The teaching cases are available for free at
The 10 ECTS version adds a project to the 5 ECTS version. The project is provided by the professorship or 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.
PROD projects are run as shared projects, in which all participants contribute and get to participate in the project results. Read more at
Class is run as two 90min blocks. The first block discusses the teaching cases. The second block is a coaching session for the projects (10 ECTS only). For the schedule see
