3:30 PM to 5:00 PM
Welcome back!! I'm looking forward to seeing you all on Monday and meeting our new students in the course.
We have an unprecedented sixteen teams and 44 students in PM102! I also have some good news to share on Monday about budget for the course :)
Prof. Austin will preview the syllabus and deliverables for PM102, and go over logistics related to project budgets and reimbursement
We'll ask each team to provide a brief (3-4 minute) update on your plans and your progress over winter break.
Session Assignment & Prep
By 10am Monday, 1/28, post the most current version of your PRD in the Jan 28 - Course Intro tab on the new, PM102 Assignment Master.
Also by 10am Monday, 1/28, please write and post on the same tab a one-pager with a brief, 2-3 paragraphs, on any progress you made on your product over J-term. Include testing, hiring/dev work, and any insights gained through these activities - especially if new information has shifted your product plans in any way. [New students: A google doc with "commenting on" for the instructor is the required format for this type of assignment]
Prepare for one of your teammates to give a 3-4 minute update on your project in the 1/28 session. Include a brief intro on what your product does and for whom (unmet need for which persona(s)), work completed over J-term, and current status of your development process.
Each team should bring 1-2 questions for the instructor and/or your classmates on next steps for hiring, contracts, budgets or development work for your project.
