Software Product Management Course 2009

SCIT : Symbiosys Center for Information Technology

January 2009 I will be teaching a software product management course to 60 final year MBA students of SCIT. This course came together after I had a chance to review SCIT course curriculum. After many discussions with Director of SCIT, I decided to design and deliver a course on Software Product Management to better equip graduating MBA students about the nature and challenges of managing software products. This web page is designed to help the students with additional resources that they can use to further enhance their understanding of this complex and vast topic.
