About

Our SIG unites IT professionals with IT basic competences at tertiary level (usually but not necessarily acquired by having completed an IT or MIS study) and a job experience and profile is that of

  • IT Consultant
  • Project Manager
  • Business Analyst, Requirements Engineer
  • Agile: Product Owner, (Portfolio) Epic Owner, Business Owner

Our focus topics are:

  • Business Requirements (modelling and measurement of scope, assuring the right thing for the customer is aimed for and done)
  • IT-Delivery Guidance (customer-side project management, estimation verification, contracting, quality and change management, final assessment and empirical database update)

Hence, our members typically build the BRIDGE between IT customer and IT delivery in non-trivial contexts. They provide the IT customer with the necessary IT competences to prepare, conduct and post-evaluate a project successfully in the primary interest of the IT customer (not of the various IT delivery units or companies involved).

Visions / Goals

  • Promote BRIDGE techniques and competences for practitioners
  • Provide a repository of knowledge, facts and figures (best-practices and empirical database)
  • Link to all levels of education providers (Universities, ETHZ/EPFL, UAS, ES/HF, private)
  • Link other Swiss communities in this domain (scanet.ch, spm.ch, …)
  • Link to International communities in this domain (iiba.org, ipma.org, pmp.org, etc.)
