Do you want to understand the real value of software development processes? How to effectively apply product management practices to your software product? Do you want to learn software design principles and practices in order to reduce the complexity of your software system?
Very often, concepts, practices and principles of product management and software engineering are learned in an abstract way. If we don't understand the essence of those concepts and tools, we end up experiencing them as an imposition. We find ourselves in a methodological cage. That brings us to applying processes and practices in a "distant" way and only because "this is how the team works."
The Software Production Explained (SPE) Seminar Series has been created to develop your product management and software design and development skills and enable you to grow your software product in a fast and sustainable way.
The goal of these seminars is not only to show how to properly apply a certain process, principle or practice but also to explain why and how they can help reduce the complexity of a software product from a business and technical point of view.
As a result of each seminar, you'll be more aware of your product management and software design and development skills. You'll be able to apply a product management or software design principle, practice or tool. You will always be stimulated to see software production principles and practices from a different perspective and increase your awareness.
