How many projects have been delayed because of improperly defined requirements that have emerged in later development phases? How many projects have been postponed because of inadequately defined conditions that have emerged in later development phases? How many companies fail to launch their systems due to inadequate oversight of all requirements needed for a project to be successful?

Agile transformation

Agile transformation with requirements engineering

How can we talk about agile development without mentioning agile requirements management? Contrary to the classical approach of sequential requirements gathering, agile methodology calls for requirements to be carried along with the development. Continuity in managing requirements is crucial for an agile project to be rolled out. Furthermore providing numerous benefits to project owners and development organizations.

Excelacom has adopted the agile development methodology to stay competitive and increase flexibility in software development. We have been enhancing this methodology for years, allowing us to productize it as a service for our customers. We have established methods of continuously collecting requirements and implementing them into the appropriate sprint. Using the latest technologies and being capable of adapting, we can create epics and stories instead of creating requirement documents.

The Experience to understand. The Power to transform.

Collecting requirements for agile development requires experienced consultants that can foresee upcoming development challenges and risks. Furthermore, they must be knowledgeable about the demands on multiple levels of the organization, where a project rollout is necessary.

When creating requirements backlogs on projects, consultants encounter different languages, terminologies, and points of view. The requirements have to be gathered from Business Users and other stakeholders. It’s necessary to collect requirements when creating a task that is both functional and non-functional or transitional.

These steps contribute to a lengthy process that decreases one’s competitive edge. Our approach to agile requirements shortens the creation time, requiring minimal functionality to launch projects. Therefore, our clients experience increased competitiveness or improved effectiveness of their resources.

We identify the right methods and tools to plan, track, and link customer requirements, tasks, tests, defects, feedback, and code reviews. We have trained consultants and the expertise to help expedite the issuing of tasks by creating compelling Epics, User Stories, Functional and Non-functional requirements. Which can all be a part of agile development, instead of completing costly change requests after project acceptance.

Plan for agility

Companies that are transition to agile processes do not have to face all these challenges at once. Our expertise in requirements management will help you overcome common challenges such as communication gaps, over-scoping and even descoping. Also, avoid unpredictable events by striking a balance between agility and stability and ensuring enough competence in cross-functional development teams.

Avoid common agile process mistakes

Weak requirements prioritization Quality issues
Late system completion Capturing innovation
Weak effort estimates Lack of documented requirements

Aligned efforts. Achieved agility.

Functional or technical dependencies with other teams are a challenge due to the required, considerable coordination efforts. Therefore, nobody is held responsible if the shared project’s coordinated efforts become more expensive than planned.

Excelacom professionals are here to help you find dependencies between requirements - to consolidate and coordinate efforts for a successful project. We will make sure to minimize your struggles during agile transformation by aligning the values of stakeholders and end-users.
