Product Description

Overlooked or poorly defined nonfunctional software requirements are widely recognized to be among the most expensive and difficult errors to correct after a softward system has been implemented. This book presents over 2,000 suggested questions to help master the elicitation of these hard-to-identify, yet vital, requirements. Its proven step-by-step techniques, insightful tips and tools, easy-to-use checklists, examples of nonfunctional requirements, and requirements-gathering questions, will assist the reader in developing and installing software requirements.

Review

"But what should I really ask?" a business analysis might reasonably wonder, even after learning techniques for eliciting requirements. Roxanne Miller's book is the first to answer that question - more than 2,000 times. Her numerous specific suggestions for what to ask on key recurring nonfunctional topics, plus hard-won wisdom and tips, are sure to enable every reader to conduct more effective user interviews. --Stephen Withall, author of Software Requirement Patterns
