Requirements validation improves the likelihood of project success, making sure that we are building the right solution and that the solution is usable, desirable, and meets the business needs and desired outcomes. The cost to correct a software defect may be as high as 2,900 times the cost to correct a requirement. This was reconfirmed in a recent study by Forrester Consulting.
The study concluded: “Organizations have boosted application delivery speed, but at the expense of the quality of specifications and requirements.”
This course takes you through steps to avoid the issues and addresses the age-old question, “How do I know I’m not missing any requirements?” There is no one silver bullet, but there are tools that can be adapted for your context. In this session you will learn a framework that guides you through your initiative/project to eliminate the chance of things going missing or not uncovered. Walk away knowing how to ensure that your requirements are validated.
This course is designed for business analysts, quality analysts, project managers, or anyone interested in improving and validating the quality of their requirements.
We recommend that the student has already attended our Essential Skills for Business Analysis class or have equivalent experience before enrolling for this course.
