Writing and Reviewing User Requirements
More than 70% of all software projects do not finish on time or within the planned budget. Badly defined requirements are often a cause of this problem. If users cannot clearly define the system they want, there is no way that developers can build it.
The purpose of this course is to teach users and people representing users how to communicate their requirements clearly. The course has a practical orientation that includes exercises in defining and writing requirements. It also provides tools (methodology and guidance) that will help in the formulation and review of business requirements.
- Translating ideas into clear requirements
- Defining functional and non-functional requirements
- Evaluating the requirements that users have written
- Writing a clear and comprehensible requirements definition document
- Avoiding ambiguity in writing requirements
- Reviewing a requirements definition document
