  • How Story Maps are used to organize user stories so that you’re always putting your effort into the tasks which make the most impact.
  • The activity of Analyzing Requirements in greater detail. This type of activity creates clear and actionable requirements which result in high-quality software with fewer errors.
  • Techniques to deal with vague, ambiguous, and unclear requirements, with examples from my clients and my work.
  • I will introduce a running example. We are going to follow this example throughout the course so that you can see how requirement activities progress from beginning to end.
