    ‘Agile Software Requirements’ Excerpt

    Agile Development still requires some level of requirement documentation. However, that documentation has to be scalable and flexible – just like Agile Development itself. This book chapter looks at Agile documentation that works.

    Effective requirements discovery and analysis is a critical best practice for serious application development. Until now, however, requirements and agile methods have rarely coexisted peacefully. For many enterprises considering agile approaches, the absence of effective and scalable agile requirements processes has been a showstopper for agile adoption. In “Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements Practices for Teams, Programs, and the Enterprise,” Dean Leffingwell shows exactly how to create effective requirements in agile environments.

    This book will help you leverage the benefits of agile approaches without sacrificing the value of effective requirements discovery and analysis. You’ll find proven solutions you can apply right now — whether you’re a software developer or tester, executive, project/program manager, architect or team leader.

    This excerpt is from the second chapter, entitled “The Big Picture of Agile Requirements.” “Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements Practices for Teams, Programs, and the Enterprise”, was authored by Dean Leffingwell (Pearson/Addison-Wesley Professional; ISBN 0321635841, published December 2010.)
