Software Product Management in rapidly changing contexts
Product success depends on skilled and competent product management. In essence, a product manager decides what functionality and quality a product should offer, to which customers, and when in time, while assuring a winning business case.
Software product management includes working with requirements, release definitions, product lifecycles, the creation and interpretation of product strategies, balancing long-term technology push with shorter-term market-pull, and assuring a successful business case by selecting the right requirement for realization.
After the success of the previous workshops (collocated with the recent RE conferences) this workshop aims at bringing practitioners and research experts together for exchanging ideas, knowledge, and experience, and for setting a research agenda based on industry needs.
* Develop the software product management body of knowledge; identify challenges and future avenues for research relevant for both academia and industry.
* Strengthen software product management as a research field within the greater field of software engineering and business management.
* Provide software product managers and researchers a dedicated forum for exchanging ideas and best practices, thus fostering industry-academia collaboration.
