Innumerable studies have concluded that requirements problems are the single biggest contributor to cost overruns, schedule slippages and loss of capability in systems and software projects. Cost impacts alone of 10%, 20%, 50%, 80% and more are regularly reported by practitioners and researchers. And yet, the cost of making substantial improvements in requirements quality is considerably lower than these cost impacts, typically 0.1 – 2% of total development cost - if appropriate skills and methods are applied.
Requirements analysis (the capture and validation of requirements through analysis of the problem domain) provides the tools for transforming the inadequate to the adequate, with respect to requirements. In this interactive session, Robert will lead us in an hour and a quarter (plus questions) through a very efficient methodology of requirements capture and validation. The methodology can be applied to any subject of requirements, in any circumstances.
