Collaborating and Communicating Agile Requirements Oct 11th – 13th
Collaborating and Communicating Agile Requirements
Learn how to elicit effective requirements for your Agile projects with hands-on exercises in this course.
Project failures are often due to poor requirements gathering, analysis and planning. Traditional requirements documents may not contain complete and accurate requirements due to rapidly changing business environments. Agile requirements gathering, by moving detailed requirements closer to implementation, allows for rapid response to change. This user story training course will show you how to define and manage these requirements effectively as well as demonstrate alternative ways of documenting requirements and managing changes. These alternatives can allow for a less “heavy” process in projects that can benefit from quick changes in direction.
