What You'll learn

  • Trace requirements’ relationships to/from other requirements and to/from other elements upstream (e.g. enterprise goals/objectives, mission/vision, values) and/or downstream (e.g. design/architecture, implementation components, testing, etc.)
  • Capture/maintain requirements’ attributes (e.g. type, status, functional area, release, complexity, etc.)
  • Assess and prioritize requirements (e.g. based on value to organization, value to customers, compliance, risks, etc.)
  • Manage changes to requirements (e.g. identify and assess requests to change, analyze/document changes, create a business case, evaluate and approve changes, monitor change implementation, track changes, etc.)
  • Manage project/product scope (e.g. define scope, agree/approve changes, avoid scope creep/gold plating)
  • Plan, monitor and control implementation of requirements/design
  • Manage requirements quality (e.g. identify missing/incomplete and/or bad requirements)
  • Analyze impact of proposed changes to requirements/design
  • Plan/optimize resource utilization
  • Reuse requirements within and across projects and solutions
