It’s no secret that wasted and inefficient work is one of IT’s biggest problems. Rework, double work, tech debt and low quality software abound.  Want to beat the trend and consistently deliver high quality software? The secret is using your requirements to create clarity and alignment for everyone involved.

In this session, Paul Mack will share some of the most common anti-patterns he sees in software requirements. Paul will also share the antidotes he uses for his requirements – and how they consistently deliver higher quality software & lead to happier, healthier teams. |
