Course Description

A close up of a piece of paper with a flow chart drawn on it in pen

Traditional requirements gathering fails when documents are incomplete and inaccurate. Agile requirements gathering allows for rapid response to change by moving detailed requirements closer to implementation. This course shows you how to gather and manage these requirements.
