Learn about the crucial steps of elicitation and analysis requirements, and how blending the multiple techniques can deliver better results.
- Choosing the right requirements technique…is sort of like putting together a jigsaw puzzle,…you know roughly what pieces to look for and start with,…you use clues like color and shape as a guide,…but sometimes trial and error…is what gets you the right fit.…It requires focus, patience, and a commitment…that often causes us to lose interest.…Many teams and BAs just use the same technique…over and over and get subpar results.…Blending multiple techniques is the key to better results.…
It's so easy to skip elicitation and analysis…and just focus on getting something documented,…yet so critical we don't.…If I could grant two wishes to everyone working…on requirements, it would be, one, more time to elicit…and analyze, and two, the ability to identify…the right technique for every situation.…It's a vicious cycle when one thing leads to another…and repeats itself endlessly, and sometimes requirements…can feel like this.…
We elicit to analyze and then the analysis brings out…more questions that we need to research…
