All are painfully aware of the dismal statistics on software projects success rates. Recent reports show that the situation is not trending for the better, and continue to point to poor requirements as the leading cause. When you peel back the covers it’s really no wonder – the discipline of Requirements Definition is not formalized, most are trying to do this work using only word processors and spreadsheets, and the role of requirements author is anything but standardized or supported.

The good news is that there is significant movement in the industry on all these fronts of late. Professional organizations are emerging for this discipline and are growing rapidly, powerful purpose-built tools for Requirements Definition now exist, and the role of the Business Analyst is rapidly solidifying. This presentation provides a snapshot of these new developments and shares some results from a recent study on the role of the Business Analyst.

We invite Business Analysts or anyone interested in requirements to take the survey! Read More...
