Problems with requirements are common to every organization. It has been estimated that 50% of project rework ties back to some aspect of requirement issues. Since problems in requirements are introduced so early in in the lifecycles, they are the most impactful and costly defects a project can experience. We spend so much time and money writing and running test on the final code, yet few companies spend any effort to evaluate the quality of their requirements. What is a requirement? How can you tell when there are requirement problems? What metrics are helpful in understanding and improving requirements problems? Chris will share requirements practices prove to make a significant and efficiency.
