Datum und Uhrzeit: Mittwoch, 11. März 2009, 11:55 Uhr
Abstract: Probably the most remarkable change to software development in the last few years has been the appearance of a new style of software methodology – referred to as agile methods. Agile methods primarily address the problems of rapid change. They treat change as an equal partner in the project, trying to processes that adapt and thrive on change. The traditional methods treat change as enemy. They accept that it cannot be avoided, so they spend much effort to control it and mitigate its effects. This fundamental difference has also an influence on the approach to requirements management system.
In my presentation, I would like to show how to manage requirements in an agile environment. I would like to present the technique of expressing requirements as user stories, which are one of the most broadly applicable practices introduced by the agile processes. I will look at how to identify and write good user stories; what tools to use when creating user stories; how user stories are used to gather customer requirements and what are the essential elements of them. I will also explore how user role modeling can help when gathering initial stories of the project.
