Requirements are the most misunderstood part of systems development, and yet the most crucial. Requirements must be correct if the rest of the development effort is to succeed. Our training presents a complete process for eliciting the real requirements, testing them for correctness, and recording them clearly, comprehensibly and unambiguously.
Software development today has more demands on it than ever; and fewer resources to meet those demands. Getting the software right – the first time – is the most effective way to succeed under these circumstances. Today’s requirements process is incremental with quick cycle times. It uses prototypes and scenarios, and it ensures that your developers know precisely what you – and your customer – mean when you write a fit criterion: a concise test case for the requirement.
This training shows you how to precisely define the scope of the business problem, to discover and involve the appropriate stakeholders, to use techniques such as apprenticing and use case workshops to learn what the users really need, to write testable requirements, and to phase the requirements to allow incremental delivery of the product.
