NewAgile Requirements Engineering

Course description

Agility is on everyone's lips. The question of where classical requirements engineering can find its place does not yet seem to have been finally answered. Often one hears statements like 'that is too complex and not agile' or 'the requirements develop during the work' up to 'documentation is no longer needed in agile projects because the truth is in the code'. In practice, despite the short development phases that characterize an agile project, the effects that the lack of structured requirements management can have on project success often (too) late. 

This course shows how agile requirements engineering contributes significantly to the success of agile projects. You will understand where requirements are determined in the agile process and formulated for further use in precisely tailored user stories. You gain a basic understanding of the functioning of agile processes and the underlying value system. You will learn how the individual agile roles can best work together to identify, formulate and prioritize requirements. With the acquired knowledge you ensure in your role that the needs of your target group (your customer) are correctly understood and fully integrated into the product. 

Learning targets:
At the end of the course, terms such as "Backlog", "User Story", "Sprint" and "Refinement" are no longer foreign words to you. You know how to transfer methods of "classical" requirements engineering into the agile world and how to live projects responsibly and efficiently. You know how agile requirements are documented and understand the special requirements of agile project management for the "Requirements Engineer" role.

Advanced courses

Modeling in agile projects

In this training you will learn that models are not bound to a certain procedure. On the contrary, they can perfectly support agile procedures such as SCRUM.

Modeling with UML - Foundation Course

This seminar will teach you the central concepts and diagrams used in UML. You will be able to try these out in practical tasks.

Process Modeling in BPMN 2

Learn about BPMN 2 and how to use it in practice in this course.
