Tailoring made easy – Workshop at REConf® 2019

As already announced in the last blog post, OSSENO will be represented at REConf® again in 2019.

This year we have a central innovation: We will offer our own workshop on the day before the main conference. On Monday, March 11, 2019, between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm, we will teach interested participants our workshop entitled “How do I get to my requirements process – tailoring made easy”, how to develop a company-specific requirements process in a targeted manner.

Relevant textbooks, training courses and conferences on requirements engineering offer a great overview of proven methods and techniques, but it often remains unclear which of them can also work in your own company and whether these best practices currently have the essential need for action.

Our workshop would therefore like to show how one can pragmatically and successfully tailor or improve one’s own requirements process without trying out what has been read or heard in trial and error manner without reflection. At the end of the workshop, the participants have a first draft of their own (future) requirements process and know which important aspects have to be considered in order to be able to successfully implement it.

There will always be short theory blocks / impulse lectures, which will be extended with practical exercises in which the participants can develop their own process.

The following agenda is currently planned for the workshop:

  • Introduction
  • Fundamentals of RE Process Improvement
  • Self Assessment – Where do we stand today?
  • Activities, templates, contents – what is important?
  • The mental model behind the requirements process
  • How much documentation do we need?
  • The first draft of a new process
  • Tool support
  • Success factors

We are looking forward to numerous registrations, which can be made via the REConf® website.
