INCOSE Chicagoland Chapters Spring 2018 Seminar

Writing Good Requirements

Presented by Lou Wheatcraft

Saturday, April14, 2018

8:00 am 4:30 pm

at IBM in Schaumburg, IL

INCOSE Chicagoland Chapter is proud to present our fall seminar, "Writing Good Requirements", presented by Lou Wheatcraft on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at IBM in Schaumburg, IL. Early bird rates start at $100. Space is limited, so register today!

The Program

Could you distinguish a good requirement from a bad one and instruct others on that distinction? More importantly, can your project team and stakeholders do the same? If the answer is no (or even a hesitant yes) then this class will provide the foundational skills required to write good (dare we say excellent!) requirements, ensuring clear and concise communication between the business and project teams.

Writing and delivering a well-written set of requirements that is clear, correct, concise, and complete is hard work. This work is often made harder because most people do not know how to write requirements. The fact that the most common reasons for project and product failures are problems with requirements supports this assessment.

In this 1-day Writing Good Requirements Tutorial, you will learn what you need to do before you write requirements, best practices for writing good functional and non-functional requirements, how to recognize defective requirements and the techniques that can be applied and the attributes captured to improve the overall quality and understanding of your requirements. Team exercises provide the attendees practice at writing requirements, critiquing their own work, and correcting defective requirements. Discussions and questions and answers help students to clarify levels of requirements and how requirements are allocated and traced at every level of the project.
