Job Description

Are you a studying Industrial economics and search for a thesis project? Husqvarna Group and our Construction division are searching for two students to do a joint thesis project about Agile Product Development.

Agile Product Development
Reduced time to market is a frequently recurring requirement in product development. The reduction in project time can be achieved in several ways, but one is how and in what type of process the actual execution takes place. With an increased share of electronics and software in our products, we face new challenges and opportunities to work in different and more efficient ways.  

Objects: To meet the target to decrease time to market and to be more flexible in our product development, we would like to investigate how to capture and utilize the pros with modern software development methods. We would also like to explore where not to apply the agile methodology to be successful. The target should be a recommendation on using an agile way of working for a specific upcoming project.

High-level areas to cover:

  • Theoretical study regarding agile product development 
  • Benchmark with other companies to find the best praxis
  • Capture opportunities for process development (both for electronics /software and mechanical engineering) 
  • Investigate process for programs and systems engineering.


  • Thesis report
  • Tangible (hands-on) recommendations for continued work
  • Training/workshop for internal stakeholders
