Improving organizational Requirements Maturity is a strategic approach to improving project success and aligning IT with the business to meet objectives on time and on budget consistently.

According to the recent IAG BA Benchmark study of 437 large and medium organizations in North America and Europe, the organizational level of Requirements Maturity is directly proportional to the likelihood of project success.

Companies invest millions of dollars in recruitment, hiring, and training of Business Analysts every year without a detailed understanding of the role and how to integrate into the enterprise; the average Requirements Maturity level in North America is only 1.8 on a scale of 1-5, and only a fraction of those measured qualified at a level 3 or higher.

For individual and organizations that are serious about improving in a consistent and measurable way, IAG will explain the key concepts and results you can expect by improving organizational Requirements Maturity

Learning Objectives:

  1. The impact of requirements maturity on overall business and project objectives.
  2. The Requirements Maturity Model.
  3. A high level roadmap to improving requirements capabilities.

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
