    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    Non-functional requirements are essential to build the right product, right. Yet analysts, developers, and business customers often struggle with when and how to define and document non-functional requirements. Some teams neglect non-functional requirements during requirements analysis, considering them less important or unrelated to user requirements. Or they specify them incompletely, or with un-testable attributes. Join Ellen Gottesdiener in a fast-paced survey of key practices to help you identify and define non-functional requirements. By acknowledging the equal importance and value of non-functional requirements, your team will create requirements documentation that fully captures the product's needs.

    Key Learning Objectives:

    1. The different types of non-functional requirements (quality attributes, external interfaces, and design and implementation constraints)
    2. Practical techniques to represent quality attributes and how to define their acceptance criteria
    3. Visualizing external interfaces
    4. Tracing non-functional to functional requirements.
