This book is a concise step-by-step guide to building and establishing the frameworks and models for the effective management and development of software requirements.

It then explains how to generate consistent, complete, and accurate requirements in exacting detail following a simple formula across the full life cycle from vague concept to detailed design-ready specifications. Mastering Software Project Requirements will enable business analysts and project managers to decompose high-level solutions into granular requirements and to elevate their performance through due diligence and the use of better techniques to meet the particular needs of a given project without sacrificing quality, scope, or project schedules.

From the Author:

My analytical nature and desire to consistently improve are undeniable. This book is intended to share every technique, trick, and tip in business analysis that have not only helped me and my clients over the years but also enabled me to gain a strong foothold in job satisfaction. It is my hope that, through sharing this knowledge, others will not only thrive as business analysts but will gain a strong sense of that same pride in accomplishment that I have felt over the years.
 
It is also my hope that companies will gain the knowledge, tools, techniques, and insight to end a large part of the financial waste and personal frustration associated with information technology. I am convinced that we could have technologies far beyond the current means, if we simply changed the way in which business analysis is performed. In order for that to happen, business analysis must become a quantitatively managed and measured set of tasks, which can be consistently improved through targeted efforts.
 
Barbara Davis

From the Back Cover:

"Most software projects have little chance of seeing the light of day. As Davis points out, 68% of software and IT projects fail. Her eye-opening look inside the world of requirements analysis points to the main reason why projects fail... and how to succeed. She explains why requirements analysis is much more than a list of features, and details multiple strategies and tactics to create the right requirements for any project."
-Vincent Serpico, CEO Spotlight Software 

"The ideas in this book add new dimension to the field of requirements management that will help software organizations improve their requirements practices and results. The treatment of measurements and benchmarking as they apply to requirements is very unique, such as: the five levels of effectiveness and index for assessing practices; and quality index, an original concept to measure the quality of requirements. I commend the author!"
- Magdy Hanna, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO,International Institute for Software Testing and Rommana Software
