Description

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.

The participants will receive an overview of methods and practice of requirements engineering. You will learn industry techniques for requirements analysis and tracking, and you will get insight into how to systematically develop, document and manage requirements with modern tools and notations. You will learn to deal with diverse interfaces and key stakeholders in the requirements arena. You will be able to transfer your learnings to your everyday projects and thus use the results productively.

Content and Agenda
