Devnology Podcast 037 - James Robertson on the requirements process
We are back with a bang! This episode features an in-depth interview on requirements with none other than James Robertson. James is co-author of numerous books and articles on the requirements process. He is a principal and founder of The Atlantic Systems Guild and joint originator of the Volere Requirements process, template, checklists and techniques. His areas of concern are the contribution that good requirements make to successful projects. He is also a leading proponent of the principle of introducing creativity into the requirements process.
We talk about his background in architecture, and how his experience in that profession provides inspiration for his work on innovation and creativity. We discuss some requirements techniques and how they can be used in software engineering projects, and we discuss the role of the business analist in agile teams. Finally we also discuss some patterns of project behaviour.
