Live Requirements Traceability Achieving Live Traceability™ of product requirements, as necessitated by industry standards, across siloed engineering teams and tools, is the #1 unsolved problem for most product development organizations. One of the main barriers is that each engineering discipline (systems, software, hardware, electrical, risk, verification and validation) has optimized its own process and tools. When looking at the end-to-end product development process siloed teams, tools, and data make it very challenging to […]
Requirements Traceability – How to Go Live Requirements traceability is required by many industry standards to ensure product quality and safety. The industry standards are based on decades of progress made in systems and quality engineering research with requirements traceability at the core. Benefits from requirements traceability are achieved if and only if traceability is […]
In this post, Jama Software’s CEO explains how to avoid misallocation of resources and underperformance in organizational OKRs by adding hypotheses to the OKR framework.
Requirements traceability is more than just helpful for proving compliance and change impact analysis, it’s a business-critical function.
In this post, Jama Software’s CEO Marc Osofsky defines a “digital thread” and outlines why it’s the best approach to reduce the risk of negative product outcomes while preserving engineering autonomy and productivity.
In this post, Jama Software’s CEO discusses how living requirements can help reduce the risk of negative outcomes in the product development process.

As I age, and my pragmatism grows, I find that many maturity models are too high level and vague and do not reflect the actual progression companies go through as they mature a given business function. What I do find extremely useful are empirical maturity models since they categorize what companies are ACTUALLY doing TODAY in response to given challenges and pressures. Unfortunately, […]
