Requirement Management for Agile Projects -2019803

Shrivastava-NK-cropped-borderIn traditional projects, requirements are elicited and gathered up-front. In contrast, Agile requirements are gathered iteratively and change as priorities shift and additional needs or a new direction emerges. The advantages to the Agile approach are multiple: Requirements are up-to-date and prioritized, and the gathering process facilitates communication with stakeholders, offering them greater say in the product’s final direction, and allowing the team to build on lessons learned.

However, the Agile requirements gathering process does introduce challenges and risks. Frequent grooming is required and can take additional time. As well, all stakeholders must be continuously engaged to generate requirements in an iterative manner.

This seminar evaluates the pros and cons of both methodologies, then focuses on best practices and pitfalls in the Agile methodology. Through a series of exercises, attendees will gain hands-on experience using user stories, epics, backlog grooming, and other features. They will leave the course armed with best practices to gather business requirements the Agile way.
