As analysts, we measure requirements against a set of characteristics to determine eligibility, and this usually means that we should end up with a solid list of requirements. But is this all there is to managing requirement risk? In this session, we work to answer three questions: Can requirement risks be quantified? Does the level of risk presented by a requirement affect its eligibility as a valid requirement? Which tools and techniques can add value to the risk management process? In order to come up with sensible answers, we classify requirement risks into three categories, look at the typical symptoms of unmanaged risk, and discuss five techniques that can help us to prevent negative risk impact.
- We will think about whether our current common approach to requirement risk management is enough.
- We will answer the question ‘Can requirement risks be quantified and if so how?’
- We will look at what tools and techniques can we use to help us manage requirement risks more efficiently.
