Presentation: ELLEN GOTTESDIENER on AGILE REQUIREMENTS
Agile Requirements: Not anOxymoron
Misconceptions abound about how (and even whether) team members on agile projects develop requirements. Traditional approaches for developing requirements seem to contradict how agile teams work. In practice, agile projects use requirements as the basis for planning, developing, and delivering business value. Learn how requirements analysis works on agile teams, how requirements are woven into planning cycles, and traditional requirements practices that agile teams sometimes adapt.
Ellen’s book “ Requirements by Collaboration describes how to use multiple models to elicit requirements in collaborative workshops.
Her second book, The Software Requirements Memory Jogger, is the “go-to” industry guide for requirements good practices.
In addition to providing training and consulting services and coaching agile teams, Ellen speaks at and advises for industry conferences, writes articles, and serves on the Expert Review Board of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) Business Analysis Body of Knowledge™ (BABOK™)
