Requirements Are Requirements—or Maybe Not

Many people talk about requirements. “Experts” use identical terms and think they have a common understanding. Yet, one says user stories are requirements; another claims user stories must be combined with requirements; and yet another has a different approach. All seem unaware of the critical inconsistencies of their positions. No wonder getting requirements right remains a major challenge for many projects. This interactive session analyzes key conflicting interpretations, describes a more appropriate model, and introduces the powerful Problem Pyramid™ systematic disciplined guide to help you more reliably get user stories and other requirements right.
