The IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysis) is holding their monthly meeting jointly with PNSQC. The speaker is Karl Wiegers speaking on Requirements Reuse: Fantasy or Feasible?
Reuse is an eternal goal for organizations seeking higher software capability. Reusing requirements can increase productivity, improve quality, and lead to greater consistency between related systems. But effective reuse is hard! This presentation, based on the new book Software Requirements, 3rd Edition by Karl Wiegers and Joy Beatty, offers numerous suggestions about how to perform requirements reuse. It describes several kinds of requirements reuse, identifies some classes of requirements information that have reuse potential in various contexts, and presents some issues around making requirements reusable. The presentation concludes by identifying both barriers to effective reuse and success factors that can help your organization leverage its existing body of requirements knowledge.

The promise of Agile is simple and compelling: a team that effortlessly surfs the wave of business possibility, changing direction to meet the needs of a changing market. Transitioning to Agile confers many benefits to an organization, but all too often teams don’t (or can’t) deliver on the promise. Too few teams achieve the ideal.
Diana Larsen and Jim Shore developed a model of the ways agile teams deliver value. This model describes four conditions of Agile fluency, what you can expect from each condition, and how to increase your team’s fluency, so you can achieve what Agile promises.
Diana and Jim will demonstrate how the organization’s desire for benefits and willingness to invest make the real difference. From creating value, to delivering, optimizing, and beyond, you will learn the practices, techniques, and change necessary as teams stretch their understanding of Agile and achieve new levels of excellence. This talk is based on the ideas behind the article at www.agilefluency.com.
