Business Requirements Practices 

Hey guys, 

Looking to get your opinion on Business Requirements practices. 

What sort of a practice do you use when writing business requirements / functional requirement documents? Do you use Volere? Or do you use something else? 

Give your opinion as I am interested to know and find out about different practices that I may not have used/heard of and what the wider audience uses :)

Re: Business Requirements Practices 

We typically use a form of Lean Power Workshops to gather the High Level Requirements (HLR). These allow us to define the HLR, justify it, and prioritize it using the MOSCOW method. 

Once this is completed then we input the requirement into an application called JAMA (Great for Requirements, not so much for Test Plans) where we can track the requirement (approvals, change requests, and other modifications). It also provides accountability on the author and end user, which is often lacking and leads to arguments or missed requirements down the road.

Re: Business Requirements Practices 

Hi Kevin

Generally, as a career contractor, I use what the company is using. Business requirements are text, functions are user stories (used to use use cases), process I use BPMN, etc.

Btw, I started on a Volere project and left after a week cause Volere didn't offer enough structure to define functionality and was to open to interpretation. Could see a disaster about to happen - it did too I heard.

It’s 4:30 pm on Friday and Mr. Manager comes along to tell you that he needs you to run some important ad-hoc analysis for him. Previously this meant having to stay late at the office, writing cumbersome queries to extract business information from transactional data. Lucky for you, you’ve recently started using Temporal Tables in SQL...

Current State For many years now, the most commonly used metaphor on Business Analysis has been the “Bridge”. However, in recent past, some in the BA community have started revisiting the metaphor resulting in a debate on how relevant it is. Of course, the value business analysis can provide for an organization does not depend on how i...
