GXMDB5005 BACKBONE PROJECT

Students work in teams to develop a digital transformation proposal in the area of retail trade. It is then up to them to do some research on the sector, and decide if the proposal should be a pitch to a major player, a smaller player that wants to grow, or come up with a completely new disruptive proposition in the sector. In this way, the new digital knowledge that is being acquired throughout the program is put into practice in real-world business applications. This project is worked under the ISDI AGILE Methodology. A PO will be assigned to the team and they will work in sprints to come up with a valuable proposal. Throughout the course they will face a Jury in Sprint Reviews & Release up to the end of the program.
