Requirements Engineering Course and Seminar

See Dr. Karl Wiegers, the foremost expert on requirements engineering, on tour!

Announcing an exclusive training workshop, "In Search of Excellent Requirements" and FREE seminar, "Requirements Engineering: Good Practices," sponsored by Technology Builders, Inc. (TBI).

Requirements form the foundation for all the software work that follows, and high-quality requirements are essential to avoid the unpleasant surprises sometimes experienced when software is delivered. This 2-day event is based on Dr. Wiegers' book Software Requirements and describes tested methods that can help any organization improve the way it gathers, documents and analyzes
software requirements.
