Bring Your Best Minds Together for a Requirements Workshop
Does this sound familiar?
We don’t have user stories ready for our development team
Our users don’t have a clear idea of their IT requirements
Our customers are not sure what functionality they need
Our stakeholders don’t agree on the user stories
A Requirements Workshop Gets Results - FAST!
Because all relevant stakeholders are present at the same time and able to communicate effectively with each other, they can make quick, informed decisions with greater confidence in the result.
Requirements Workshops Can Solve Your Toughest Issues
Our Product Backlog is a mess
Missing, redundant, and conflicting requirements give me a huge headache
Replenishing our Product Backlog or Kanban Board takes too long
Stakeholders have conflicting priorities
Getting answers from our stakeholders takes forever
Communication gaps exist between customers, developers, and project managers
ASK US HOW!
Working with your business or customer-side teams and your developers, our experienced facilitators deliver the results you need – User Stories, Features, Functional and Non-Functional Requirements, Process and/or Data Models. You decide!
A Rose By Any Other Name …
User Story Workshop, Backlog Grooming Session, Collaboration Meetings, Requirements Discovery Workshop, Three Amigo Conversations, Replenishment Meeting, Sprint 0, Requirements Meeting, Level 0 Workshop, Strategy Meeting, Requirements Workshop …
These are all different terms used for deciding and defining which set of product features our developers should work on next. Some of the terms are linked to software development methods such as Scrum and Kanban others are more general in nature.
Whether you use Kanban, Scrum, or a combination of the two, like Scrumban, Kanplan, WagiLeanFall, or WaterKanScrumBanFall, all of them are team processes. Every team needs to figure out how to plan, define, develop, and release great software.
In any of these types of get-togethers, experts from the technical and the business side discover, define, prioritize, validate and discuss IT requirements at the right level of detail needed at this point in time. A facilitator adds value to such a session if multiple stakeholders are involved or the business needs are complex.
The lean or agile team might use the results of a workshop to add items to their product backlog, replenish a Kanban Board, or just have a high level requirements document for the current project.
