HECTOR Alumni Meeting 2017: Agile Product Development with THALES

On a regularly basis the HECTOR School presents it's Alumni Meeting in cooperation with one of our industry partners and HECTOR Alumni worldwide.

On November 10/11, the next alumni meeting "HECTOR Alumni meet THALES" will take place in Stuttgart, Germany. The topic of the event will be Agile Product Development. At times of a progressing globalization and increasing product individualization, manufacturing companies have to offer innovative products that allow for a clear competitive advantage while adressing the individual requirements of the markets. Those go along with a wide set of challenges - a promising approach currently discussed is tranfering agile methods for software development to product development. At the alumni meeting we'll discuss the topic with experts from KIT, the Alumni of THALES and gain some insights into the company.
