June 23: The Essence of Requirements Specification Techniques
Join us for our June IIBA Seattle chapter meeting, in the cloud! We are very excited to have Dr. Kivanç Ahmed Dincer as guest speaker.
Dr. Kivanç will start with traditional requirement specification techniques used since the early days of software engineering, and proceed towards modern ones that have become popular with the introduction of agile development methods. Among these are requirements lists, use cases, scenarios, feature lists, user stories, and backlog items. He will introduce some case study excerpts from the software industry and explain the capabilities of some requirements management tools. He will also elaborate on how companies customize those techniques to meet their business needs and discuss the pros & cons of the distinct and joint use of the techniques in different project settings.
