This one day workshop introduces a complete process for uncovering the real requirements, testing them for correctness, and recording them clearly, comprehensibly and unambiguously. This requirements process starts with the business—for it is only within the business that you can discover the real needs. When you know the real needs, it is possible to determine the system that best serves those needs, and to specify, completely and innovatively, the requirements to get that system built. Correctly.

The workshop is based on the acclaimed Mastering the Requirements Process—3rd edition, Getting Requirements Right. A prize draw between the delegates will select the winners of 3 signed copies of the book.

Delegates will receive a copy of the Volere Requirements Specification Template, a worked example using the Volere Template and a course workbook. Volere is an approach to requirements used in thousands of organisations around the world. It encompasses the discovery, communication and management of requirements for any type of system. This quick-start workshop gives you enough tools and techniques to write accurate and unambiguous requirements — in one day.
