Practice-based lecture at the THM Mittelhessen

What is the optimal way to implement customer requirements in IT projects? Graduate Mathematician Christopher Blüthgen, Head of Digital Platforms at mbi, addressed this issue at a practise-based lecture for computer science students at the Central Hesse University of Applied Sciences (“Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen”).

One of the topics covered was switching to agile methods and tools at mbi and why they suit requirements management much better than those used in classic development projects. Various practical examples taken directly from daily business at the company illustrated the methods and tools to the participants.

Discussing theory and practice is of great importance for the students and mbi alike. "Our cooperation with the THM is very valuable for us. Joint projects allow us to learn enormously from the latest findings from research and science. We’re also glad to share our practical experience," explains Martin Bork, Managing Director of mbi GmbH. "And we also benefit greatly from the THM graduates who we find to be well-trained and motivated. Many of our employees are THM alumni and implement demanding software projects for our customers in agile teams."

mbi is a member of the THM’s MNI foundation and offers practical insights and student contracts, as well as dual study positions in cooperation with StudiumPlus.
