Mastering the requirements process

This course is based on the book by Suzanne and James Robertson „Mastering the requirements process“. Participanct will obtain their copy from last edition.

Requirements are the most misunderstood part of systems development, and yet the most crucial. Software can solve almost any problem. The problem is that we don't always understand what the problem is. Understanding the problem—the real problem—is the role of the requirements process. 

This workshop presents a complete process for uncovering the real requirements, testing them for correctness, and recording them clearly, comprehensibly and unambiguously. This requirements process starts with the business—for it is only within the business that you can discover the real needs. When you know the real needs, it is possible to determine the system that best serves those needs, and to specify, completely and innovatively, the requirements to get the right system built. 
This workshop shows you how to precisely define the scope of the business problem, to discover and involve the appropriate stakeholders, to use today’s techniques to learn what the business really needs, to innovate and find better ways to do the work, to communicate effectively and to write testable, unambiguous
