Training Requirements Engineering, IREB CPRE FL

Requirements engineering is the key for successful projects. Our three-day training provides the relevant know-how together with many practical examples from our industry projects. The training is based on the IREB Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering, Foundation Level. We offer the optional IREB certification on the last day as part of the training.

In our consulting projects we get many questions that are not covered in companies and certainly not alone by tools, such as DOORS or PREEvision. These questions include for instance:
> How to handle requirements in agile development and map to traceable increments?
> How to efficiently achieve testability and coverage of requirements to satisfy legal demands?
> How to systematically identify requirements and efficiently document them?
> How to fill not so obvious gaps in specs?
Obviously such questions are about process and methodology which we cover in this training.

Requirements Engineering, IREB CPRE FL - Our first-time pass rate exceeds 80%!
