Workshop title: Reframing Requirements Engineering in its context of Business Analysis
Speaker: Julie Davies Shields
Time: 12.05.2016 10:45-13:00
Requirements engineering is often viewed as an IT discipline, being as it is a key contributor to successful software development. Based on the awareness of the importance of requirements engineering, especially in IT projects, many companies have started to implement the role of a requirements engineer, which in today’s project governance is often confused with the role of the business analyst.
So, how do we business analysts differ from our colleagues in the role of a requirements engineer? When and where do we business analysts use and rely on requirements engineering? What is the purpose of requirements engineering? Why is requirements engineering not always about IT? And if it is not about IT, what else is it about?
In this workshop, we will have a close look at those questions, using the BABOK v3 as a principle guideline and using examples from different projects where the main focus was not on software development.
This 2 hour workshop takes place at the BA Camp on May 12, 2016 in Vienna:Book now
