January 25, 2011 is an important day.
If you watch one State address, it will probably be President Obama’s State of the Union address. But if you watch two, you may want to include the State of Requirements Management Report of 2011. The report contains the results of an industry-wide survey of project managers, developers, business analysts — anyone involved in the development process — and highlights the trends, challenges and successes in managing requirements and delivering better software.
Join us via webinar as we discuss results & trends of this industry-wide survey, co-sponsored with Ravenflow. All webinar participants will also receive a free copy of the report.
Here’s a sneak peek of our findings:
- What’s a company’s biggest challenge in innovation? Communication? Documenting requirements? Not so for over seventy percent of survey participants. They agree that it’s hardest to gain a clear understanding of what customers want.
- Customer satisfaction comes first. It’s the most important metric when measuring a project’s or product’s success. The second most important metric? Quality assurance and safety rankings.
- The ultimate question: do you use agile or waterfall ? The majority of participants responded that their software development process is a mix of the two.
