2001 – 2011 Requirements Quest celebrates 10th anniverary!
Founded in 2001, Requirements Quest® is an industry leader in requirements management and business analysis consultancy. Requirements Quest is renowned for its Requirements Quest Process™, a superior, repeatable approach to requirements elicitation, analysis, representation, and validation, which is deployed on client consulting engagements. Requirements Quest’s core competency is requirements management process improvement, as well as business analysis development. As a solution-driven consulting company, Requirements Quest is devoted to working with our clients to improve their requirements development and management processes, and committed to developing the skills of business analysis practitioners.
Requirements Quest is a sponsor of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®), and founder of the Greater Madison Chapter, Wisconsin, USA. Furthermore, Requirements Quest is an active sponsor of IIBA® chapters, as well as project management and business analysis educational events. Requirements Quest is a chartered Endorsed Education Provider of IIBA®, and has enhanced the skills of thousands of practitioners in business analysis and requirements management techniques. Requirements Quest’s unique training provides a role-based approach to implementing requirements practices. Quality requirements and successful software projects are not the sole responsibility of the business analyst role; rather, quality requirements are the result of collaboration from multiple stakeholders.
The Requirements Quest logo (“the hand”) symbolizes the importance of user involvement, both internal and external, as a critical factor for project success. The goal of a successful Requirements Management Process is to get a consistent interpretation of the requirements from all the stakeholders. Requirements Quest applies a proven repeatable, five-stage Requirements Management Process that significantly elevates the involvement of the right stakeholders, and fosters a collaborative team approach with increased commitment to the requirements.
The five stages of the process are symbolized by the five fingers on “the hand.” The first four fingers represent the iterative activities of requirements development: Elicitation, Analysis, Representation, and Validation. Upon successful refinement, detailing, and approval of the requirements, the requirements are baselined in the Change Control stage (represented by the thumb) where requests for change are monitored to maintain scope.
Requirements Quest’s highly-credible consultants are IIBA® Certified Business Analysis Professionals™ (CBAP®). They bring years of practical experience and knowledge into your organization, and work diligently to transfer that knowledge and promote the development of your own internal requirements expertise.
