Preparing Great Requirements Specifications

A course presented over 1 day by Robert HalliganAlwyn Smit or Clive Tudge

Specification writing is a science practiced by many, mastered by surprisingly few.  And yet, the payoff from achieving excellence in this area is large.

This one-day specification writing course addresses the conversion of individual requirements into effective requirements specifications.  The course builds knowledge and understanding regarding structure and language. The course is applicable to the specification of both physical items and software items, from the largest to the smallest, in both procurement and engineering scenarios. The specification of services is overviewed but not covered explicitly in great depth. However, most of the principles and techniques have direct application to the specification of services.
