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).
