Review – Requirements by Collaboration

Requirements by Collaboration, Ellen Gottesdiener. ISBN 0-201-78606-0. Addison-Wesley, 2002.
Workshops are an effective place to capture requirements – getting the right people in the room, working together well, they can reach important agreements about what is needed. This book focuses mostly on workshops: how to organize and run them. While there’s a little bit about particular documents or approaches for requirements, this book is focused less on those techniques and more on the workshop itself. (Reviewed Sept., ’05)
