Webinar: One more time: Do we still have to write requirements?

Statistics:Article Rating (4020 Views) (2 Comments)


Sometimes it seems that the decades old debate between agile software development and non-agile approaches about whether requirements need to be written down is not going to go away. But the debate lingers on. On the one side, there are a number of reasons why we need to have a written record of project and software requirements. On the other side, we should just sit down and talk about it until we figure out what were going to deliver in the project or with the software. This webinar attempts to provide a definitive breakdown of both sides of the debate and a recommendation for what can be done to increase the potential for quality project results and working software. Topics: • Why gather and document requirements? • How does a “no requirements” environment work? • What happens to the job of requirements definition? • What is a business analyst to do?

As soon as everyone's memory is perfect and human communication is free from all possible ambiguities and misunderstandings, we can stop writing requirements. Until then, though...
