This AMS course provides a deep insight to the skills, tools, and techniques associated with Agile Requirements Development, and can be used as part of a progressive curricular, standalone learning experience, or team up-skilling initiative. Agile Requirements Development is a key skill in today’s progressive organizations. Unlike many requirements gathering or requirements development courses, this course leads the participant though effective Agile requirements development using facilitation best practice techniques along with visual modeling techniques. The main objective of this course is to teach the participant to capture the majority of their requirements early in the project, including various types of requirements that commonly go undetected. Requirements decomposition and detailing will also be addressed in a practical manner including timing issues for detailing high level requirements and overall requirements prioritization. Participants will enhance their experience by interacting with imbedded scenarios, participating in table exercises, building a personal action plan, and sharing with their peers.
