The specific tools used vary based on the company assignment. The course is enhanced by interaction with experts from the company partner and guest speakers and coaches. Course typically serves as a capstone after students have completed courses on project management and agile project management; interested students without this experience can replace these by suggested online components before the course start. Course uses experiential learning, project based learning, flipped classroom and peer-learning.
