Requirements Analysis

Sometimes the simplest creative script can really enhance a workshop. Here, five simple rules are being used to guide the development of a requirements model. The power of this is that by taking the words and inserting them into the questions, there is a far greater response from the workshop attendees. As the model develops, and new questions are asked, new requirements come to light.

// simple requirements questions
* "What requirements come to mind when considering {this}?"
* "What assumptions are we making when we say {this}?"
produces(,) "How will we convert {from} into {to}?"
produces(,) "Is {to} sufficient to achieve {from}?"
* "Do we now have all of the information we need? To learn more about {this} who do we need to speak to next?"
