I am co-editor of The Making of Software, principal consultant of Software.Process.Management, and partner at pd7.group.
My expertise draws on more than 30 years experience of globally distributed, large scale software development. My professional activities and responsibilities have covered almost all aspects of the software lifecycle.
Today, I work as trainer and consultant focusing on the areas of software product management and requirements management. Using a holistic approach, I combine processes and practices with optimal tool support. Some prominent tool examples are Jira and Jama Connect from Jama Software.
Earlier in my career I worked for HPE Software, having been responsible for the worldwide requirements management practice.
Regularly, I speak at international conferences and publish in journals.
I hold a diploma in computer science (Dipl.-Inf. Univ.) from Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen, Germany. I am a member of GI, and a founding member and current board member of the International Software Product Management Association (ISPMA).
