Re: Planning for requirements gathering and elicitation 

 Try using the following RAM:

  • R = Responsible
  • A = Accountable
  • S = Support
  • C = Consulted
  • I = Informed
  • O = Observing

It's the last one "O" that I draw your attention to.  In your meeting agenda you assign "O" to the developers and designers.  They are invied to the workshop but as observers only.  This keeps them in the loop while freeing up the meeding for a true needs assessment.  This must be socialized with the stakeholders, the team, the PM and the sponsor.

Re: Planning for requirements gathering and elicitation 

 Guys,

Many thanks for your valuable input.

I had to delay my response as I took a few days to read more about what you have recommended.

I think the Context diagram is a very good advice which I will try to implement. Not sure about DFDs though as it seems too complicated for what we're doing which is mobile apps. 90% of them do not even have a back end. Activity diagrams should, in my opinion, be sufficient

 We have a list of models for RML that is pretty comprehensive from a requirements point of view. We organize the models into people, systems and data models. People models organize information from a user point of view. System models organize information about the ecosystem and individual systems. Data models organize the flow of data through the system and individual data elements (from a business not technical point of view).

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...

So you’ve found the perfect time and place to study and you’re ready to finally get some work done. You’ve pulled out your laptop, your textbook, and your notes, and four different highlighters. After five minutes of reading your textbook, you start zoning out and thinking about puppies. Then, you go on Tumblr and look at cut...
