You invest in something to make it more valuable. Requirements work the same: You are investing in the requirements part of product development to end up with a more valuable product and get it less expensively.
Suzanne and James Robertson aim to show you how investing in the requirements part of your project should be seen and treated the same as if you were investing in property, bonds, stock shares, or anything else that has the potential to give you a positive return on your investment.
Requirements-Led Project Management: What Is the Value of Requirements? is a multi-part excerpt of the book.
It discusses interesting issues, like:
– Risk of Not Knowing the Requirements
– Risk of Putting Too Much Effort into Requirements
– Risk of Being Too Formal with the Requirements and the Specification
– Risk of Boredom with the Requirements Process
