Quality Begins with Requirements: Key Practices for Business Analysis SuccessKeynote Speaker!
If you don't get the requirements right, it doesn't matter how well you execute the rest of the project: you will fail. A powerful strategy for success is to push quality to the left side of the development schedule, rather than trying to patch it in through rework after the fact. Building a solid foundation of requirements for each development increment contributes strongly to that strategy.
