When a software development organization wants to improve the way it works, it’s not enough to write a bunch of procedures, buy some tools, and run your staff through some training.

The manager leading a change initiative also must consider the organization’s culture.

A software engineering culture is a set of beliefs, behaviors, and technical practices that define an environment in which all team members are committed to building quality software products through effective and appropriate software processes.

As requirements form the foundation of all the software work that follows, it’s especially important to instill a set of effective values, principles, and practices around requirements practices.

This presentation describes 10 lessons learned from leading requirements improvement initiatives.

Learn:

  1. A commitment to effective requirements engineering is a hallmark of a healthy software engineering culture.
  2. Clearly defined business requirements are the foundation of a successful project.
  3. Taking a usage-centric approach instead of a feature-centric approach during elicitation better meets user needs.
  4. Customer engagement is a vital contributor to building high-quality software.
  5. The business analyst plays a central role in understanding and communicating a project’s requirements.
  6. No single view of the requirements shows you everything you need to know.
  7. A guiding principle of requirements

Requirements are the key aspects to successful projects and the foundational concept of where business analysts can bring value to an organization.

When done with rigor and discipline, requirements keep projects on scope, validate testing efforts and ensure alignment with overall organizational strategies while ensuring value continues to be delivered.

However, managing requirements well in our constantly changing and dynamic environments is the challenge every project manager, business analyst, product owner and subject matter expert today faces regardless if they are novice level and entering the analyst field or seasoned professionals managing complex environments.

In this session Jamie Champagne will walk through practical applications of requirements analysis & design and managing requirements in the ‘real world’ – where strict processes and templates may not always be followed (or even created), learn tips and tricks to help keep efforts on track and moving in a positive direction even when you’re not the leader or person in charge (or even get the title of Business Analyst of Requirements Manager) and while having some fun (didn’t know requirements were that exciting, did you…?) !

Topics to be covered during this session are planning for requirements elicitation, elicitation techniques, traceability, testing plans, validation, approvals, tracking and even reuse.

As well as there will be room for questions to bring up your own situations and challenges you face in your environments today.

Course Learning Objectives Include:

  • Understand the multiple facets of requirements
  • Learn techniques for eliciting and managing requirements
  • Gain tips and tricks to immediately apply to requirements in your own work

With the Course You Will Receive:

  • Access to the Live and Recorded Version of Webinar
  • Personalized Certificate of Attendance
  • Copy of Presentation Slides
