Requirements Quest applies established, process improvement models and concepts and brings industry standards to your organization. The goal of process improvement is for people in your organization to work in new ways that yield effective results.
- A process that is “Documented” can be repeated.
- A process that is “Repeatable” can be measured.
- A process that is “Measurable” can be improved!
There is no typical client, but there are shared traits. Clients recognize that they cannot get where they want to be by using the same approach that they’ve used before. They trust the process and participate, even when they can’t see how it is going to get them where they want to be. Our clients fondly refer to the Requirements Quest Process™ as the “Quest Process”. The process is a documented, repeatable (iterative) approach to requirements elicitation, analysis, representation, validation, and managing changes to requirements. A process is defined by repeatable activities that people perform rather than by a set of deliverable templates and tools used.
The goal of a successful requirements management process is to get a consistent interpretation of the requirements from all the stakeholders.
The five-stage Requirements Quest Process™ 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 Requirements Quest’s logo (“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.
