Consultant Ellen Gottesdiener guides us through the ins and outs of creating software requirements in Agile development environments in this audiocast interview. In some ways, she explains, it seems that the traditional means determining requirements – that is, doing a lot of up-front analysis – does not sound like a good fit for an Agile project, and that perception is both true and false. She covers such fine points of requirements definition in Agile as:
- Ways to "tamp down" requirements so they are truly agile
- Populating user stories in a product backlog
- How much detail user stories should have
- Approaches for lightening the requirement documentation load
- How to get an accurate "big picture" of requirements in Agile projects
