Winner, Software Development Jolt Productivity Award 1999

As a developer, have you ever produced software that satisfied all the project specs—and seemingly none of the customer's expectations?

Without formal, verifiable requirements—and an effective system for managing them—the result is usually a gap between what developers think they are supposed to build and what customers think they are going to get.

In SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS, you'll discover practical, effective techniques for managing the requirements engineering process all the way through the development cycle—including tools to facilitate that all-important communication between users, developers, and management.
