If Developer is not understanding requirement? Does he should ask BA or do the app on his wish 
Hi folks, I am really stuck in a position where i cant judge whose mistake it is, As a BA i understand my role and trying to make project complete within timelines. I had made understand one requirement of one module to particular developer at the start of project. But the product came really absurd, when i am asking developer about the reason, if he dint understood the requirement why dint he ask me, he is saying that its not his problem and i m clueless what to do? And to a particular team, there are 2 members who should understand requirements thoroughly, one is asking for BRD with only prototypes and other one BRD as how we write in tracelability matrix just critical requirement statements. Please suggest,what to do Thanks in advance

Hi Neha,

The best suggestion here at this time for you is to have a sprint meet quite often with the development team and SRS document you have created for the project must have been effective. Even though the development team has any kind of doubts, they must have asked you, However Just ensure that the sprint meet definitely happens.

Hi Neha,

Walk the developers through your requirements to start with but that's probably too late for you now. Worth doing though if you think they'll do it. Have you been involved in the project the whole time? Who is testing the product? Whoever tested it shouldn't have passed it if it didn't meet requirements.

Suggest you do a traceability matrix to map requirements to product features / screens or whatever and vice versa (features /screens that don't match a requirement). Test product to make sure the features / screens etc meet the requirements. Challenge any extra features / etc.

Escalate the developers attitude to PM. You are somewhat culpable if you are on the project especially if you tested the product.

Usually there is some kind of Walk-Through ... discussing the requirements, understandings and any fixes.

They may not know they don't understand correctly.  Don't rely on written descriptions for everything unless you've both successfully worked together for quite some time and just know how much detail is needed and have good communication habits.  This is especially important if you do not share a native language.   Until then, talk to each other about the requirements until you are satisfied that they understand and only use the written form as confirmation of what was agreed in conversation.  Now, the conversation could be face-to-face but sometimes it is better that it is over some chat tool such as Slack, Skype or Google hangouts text, so that the conversation can be re-called in detail. 

If possible, have the programmer explain his understanding to someone else on the team that also understands what is needed.  Can perhaps do this as part of how you both agree on an estimate of how much work will be required.

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.
