About the training

Finding the right requirements and coordinating them with stakeholders are essential tasks in requirements engineering. How stable requirements remain over the course of a project depends on a clear, complete and accurate definition of those requirements. Review techniques, linguistic checks of natural language requirements and being able to work professionally with stakeholders all contribute significantly to this process. This course places particular emphasis on intensive exercises related to the various techniques and methods.
