Software Requirements 7 Critical Success Factors w/ Karl Wiegers

BA Community:

Those of us who have been writing software for a while know that if you don’t get the requirements right, it really doesn’t matter how well you execute the rest of the project. But eliciting, analyzing, specifying, validating, and managing requirements is hard, and not everyone understands why it’s so critical. This presentation describes seven critical success factors that will go a long way toward making the requirements activities in your organization pay off for the many project stakeholders.

The success factors are:
• A shared understanding of what requirements are and why we care
• Clearly defined business objectives
• Trained, skilled, and motivated business analysts
• A collaborative partnership with customers
• Rigorous and ongoing requirements prioritization
• Taking an incremental and iterative approach to requirements development
• Anticipating and accommodating change
