The training was itself agile! The focus during the second day was changed based on the progress of the first day. Kristian gave us exercises based on, and specific advice for, the actual challenges we're facing now, rather than made-up examples. In this way he worked with us to demonstrate how these techniques work with real-world edge cases as well as straightforward cases.

126273 Efficient Requirement Management using Agile Methods and Agile UML Modeling 21 hours Objective: This training course aims at helping product managers, products owners, business analysts, system architects and developers understand how to efficiently Manage Requirements on the basis of the product vision till guiding developers accurately in implementing them. More in detail, this course aims at assisting product managers in better defining the value propositions of their products on the basis of strategies and stakeholder needs. Business Analysts and product owners understand how to describe requirements of the product backlog then discover appropriate epics and user stories of the system while contributing to the required value creation. Along interactive case study exercises, participants learn how to describe in detail such requirements in order to validate correct understanding of needs and prepare system acceptance tests. Thus, only using a very common and productive UML profile, they learn to structure requirements in order to communicate efficiently with architects and developers through an iterative requirement gathering process. Audience: Product Managers Product Owners Business Analysts Anyone interetsted in the Requirements Management Process Introduction What is the Requirement Management Process ? Why Agile ? Business agility and agile software delivery : Definitions Linking Agile to Business : Business Motivation Model vs. Business Model Canvas, How to effciently use the Value Proposition Canvas for defining the Product Vision ?

Business Extensions of Agile : Structuring Business Value Contribution of a User Story A Panorama of UML diagrams for modeling requirements Frameworks for tracing requirements toward software implementation and tests The 5 levels planning of an agile project (from Clarifying the Vision and Product Backlog to Tasks… and the Architecture Walking Skeleton) Managing Requirements within Agile Methods (Scrum, DAD) vs. the Unified Process (RUP) Roles, teams, environments Presentation of the Case Study for Structuring requirements and managing them using an iterative process How to describe the business vision and needs via traceable models ? Qualification of the requirements : The Kano model vs. the Value Proposition Canvas Structuring the Vision of the Product on the basis of strategies, environmental forces and trends Value proposition, key activities, key resources, revenue streams and cost structures,  Discovering the business scope of the product using the customer needs, gains and pains Describing business use cases using 'value streams' and 'value stages' Bridging the business scope of the product with expected 'value contributions' Case Study : Describing the vision of the product How to describe user needs via agile use case modeling (epics and user stories) ?  Agile Estimating and Planning Building and managing the product backlog / granularity of requirements Ahead of the sprint planning Creation of the sprint backlog Agile User Story Pattern : system scope (the subject), actors, use cases, user stories, acceptance criteria, the INVEST model The Walking Skeleton using Disciplined Agile Delivery : From Processes to Technology  How to find out epics and user stories on the basis of value streams ? Value contribution of epics and user stories Writing tasks : granularity and size using the SMART model Case Study : Discovering epics and user stories on the basis of value streams Validating and testing correct understanding of detailed specifications  Using an incremental requirement gathering process and the sprint backlog Rules for efficient epic, user story and architecture descriptions Diagrams for validating epics and user story descriptions  How to choose the right diagram ?  Refining features using use cases and relationships modeling Testing correct understanding of requirements using Test-Driven Requirements Given/When/Then structures and Operation Contracts for guiding developers in implementing requirements Coverage analysis and change management Case Study : Validating, testing and communicating detailed requirements to developers Conclusion Steps of efficient requirement gathering and system analysis processes  Traceability between requirements and analysis models  Patterns for gathering and testing requirements  Notice: The above training-mentoring sessions are conducted interactively using examples from Requirement Engineering and Modeling tools in order to ensure good level of traceability between requirements and underlying solutions. Concepts are first explained using basic examples and are then followed by solution drafts to your potential case. After this session, we can also accompany you by reviewing and validating your solutions depending on your needs.
