Authors Quotes

“The lesson to take home for people dealing with specifications… is to be aware of effects that bias can have.”

Manon Penning in Biased Toddlers

“A final common peril for large enterprises transforming from waterfall to agile is the continuation of waterfall funding while delivering in an agile fashion…”

Joy Beatty in Making “agiLE” Work

“When agile teams are faced with business complexity, they need to on-board many of the traditional techniques of Requirements Engineering.”

Howard Podeswa in The Business Case for Agile Business Analysis
About the Requirements Engineering Magazine

The Requirements Engineering Magazine is an independent online magazine, published every four months by IREB.

The Requirements Engineering Magazine shall serve as a platform for the active exchange of professionals on Requirements Engineering (RE). It is cost free in order to motivate as many professionals as possible to read the articles and thus give them the opportunity to expand their range of knowledge. Articles around the RE-topic are contributed by international professionals from the fields of BA and RE. Everybody is welcome to submit articles, may she/he be IREB member or not!

As the Requirements Engineering Magazine provides a global platform for the active exchange on RE, the articles solely reflect the authors’ viewpoints and do not necessarily express the opinion of the IREB; some articles might not represent the official position of IREB.

IREB addresses that with two new certifications: the CPRE RE@Agile Primer, coming very soon, and the CPRE RE@Agile Advanced Level which will follow the Primer in summer 2017. Our goal is to support the community in showing how RE may be applied in an Agile environment. Or is it a goal? I need to discuss that with Karol Frühauf (see below!).
