Requirements Management Fundamentals teaches the experienced business and system analyst how to effectively manage requirements in the iterative software development lifecycle. Beginning with a discussion on the importance of requirements management, the course then describes how the iterative lifecycle impacts managing the continually changing requirements of a software development project. Then how to search for the “problem behind the problem” using root cause analysis is discussed. The course then describes how to capture the stakeholders, situation statement, solution statement, product features, and constraints in the vision document. Discussion continues with how to define a traceability strategy and how to apply it for managing scope and change. The course also discusses how to establish and maintain scope using the use case model and requirements attributes throughout the four phases of the iterative lifecycle. The course finishes with an overview of change request management as it relates to requirements. Students continually apply these concepts and techniques throughout the course in hands-on group exercises.
