Software Requirements Fundamentals for BAs, Testers, and Developers

You deal with software requirements all the time. Whether you are a developer in an agile environment, an analyst who identifies and documents requirements for plan-driven development, a software designer who studies requirements as the basis for agile development, a tester who employs or often must discover requirements as the foundation of test cases, or a technical user who describes your needs to development, you need the right approaches and skills to develop and interpret software requirements. Join Lee Copeland to learn how to identify all the important stakeholders of a system and better ways to elicit and capture requirements in different settings: one-on-one interviews, meetings, brainstorming and Joint Application Development (JAD) sessions, buddy checks, inspections, ambiguity reviews, and retrospectives. Discover ways to ferret out the big risks, unknowns, and unresolved conflicts that often doom projects from the start.
