Foundations 4 - Requirements Writing
We'll examine another critical organizational skill, nearly always assumed to be known by the professionals doing the work, but rarely actually taught. Whether you call them requirements, stories, etc., there are elements to requirements writing that everyone needs to understand in order to do them well...repeatedly and over time. Bad requirements lead to wasted time, rework, testing issues, higher costs, and a host of other issues. We'll also examine timing, writing the right thing at the right time, explore definitions of requirements and challenge some of the tenants built into the most popular ideologies surrounding requirements and design.

And Don't Forget the Innovate Carolina 2019 Conference!
Date: Friday April 5, 2019
Location: UNCC Center City | Charlotte, NC
Conference Theme: Innovation and Digital Transformation: Partners, Neighbors or Frenemies?
The 2019 conference celebrates our 10th Innovate Carolina conference. But rather than looking back, this year, we will focus on emerging ideas and technologies and how they might impact the future of innovation over the next 10 years. How do these two important strategic initiatives work together to help companies achieve more or how may they end up in conflict? Does digital transformation make innovation easier? Does a deep focus on digital transformation make innovation more difficult?
Our speakers will represent both large and small organizations, as well as consultants and experts in how innovation and digital transformation influence the other.
Visit our website for more information on the conference, information of speakers, information on the student competition and sponsorship opportunities.
Early-bird registration now open until 2/22!
