Writing Better Requirements training course
Business Analysis, Technical Writing, Business Analyst
As a business analyst or technical author, writing requirements is part and parcel of your life. Your use of language and how you write it needs to be crisp, clear and concise.
Requirements spell out the capabilities that the organisation needs and specify the details that developers must have in order to build a solution. Writing requirements is one of the most important deliverables of a business analyst’s work.
In this on-day course you’ll learn how to identify and define all the different types of requirements and then use a checklist and template-driven approach to make sure that none of the features, functions and parameters of a requirement are overlooked. You’ll understand what the drivers are behind business and stakeholder requirements and how these are translated into functional and non-functional requirements.
You’ll learn how to produce fully specified requirements from user stores and how to express functional requirements as formal use cases. You’ll also understand how transition requirements are used to move from the as-is to the to-be system.
Putting it all together. Today few people have time to read multiple documents - you need to be able to write once for multiple audiences. You need to be able to combine business requirements with functional specifications into a single document - a Requirements Solution Specification - which can be understood, used and acted upon, by both business and technical readers.
