What you'll learn:

- Use the Product Vision as a roadmap to success
- How to elicit and document system requirements
- New skills with practical, interactive exercises
Clear, concise, and accurate requirements will help avoid late, over budget, or canceled projects. Too much documentation or inflexible requirements can bog down a project. Find the right mix of formal written requirements and Agile documentation -- user stories, use cases, prototypes, and visual models -- that works best for you.
This practical, hands-on course will provide a flexible requirements development approach customized to your environment and the skills needed to successfully discover, analyze, communicate, and evaluate requirements.
Learn how requirements within Plan-Driven and Agile development approaches differ in terms of requirements timing, depth, and documentation. How agile planning is properly done and where requirements fit into this iterative planning process. Understand different types of requirements, their purpose, and how to iteratively create and manage them as software is planned, built, tested, and deployed.
Practice New Skills with Interactive Exercises
This course offers interactive exercises to provide practical experience and improve your requirements development skills. Use a real-world case study to identify stakeholders, develop a vision statement, and produce concise, accurate, and usable requirements documentation. Find ways to transfer the newly learned techniques back to your organization’s requirements process and take away a framework for understanding business and user needs to develop a suitable software solution.
