Software Requirements: Definition and Management

The ChallengeSince 1994, the Standish Group CHAOS Study has reported that inadequate requirements are a major contributor to IT project failure. This revelation has driven significant work in the areas of requirements engineering, with the result that requirements definition tools and techniques today are better than ever. However, requirements remain an issue in IT projects. There is still a poor understanding of all the factors at work in an IT project that must be considered if the project team is to have an adequate, internally consistent and robust set of requirements. The SolutionSoftware Requirements: Definition and Management takes a very broad view of the processes and players at work during requirements elicitation and management. Participants gain a deep understanding of the range of skills required to make this important aspect of IT projects a success.
