Capturing Wild Requirements for Testing

I presented “Capturing Wild Requirements – For Testing” to VANQ.org, the Vancouver Software Quality Assurance User Group, and I wanted to share that material with you. Later, I developed this material into a 1-day workshop Requirements Ghostwriting: Filling in the Blanks.

Compromises regarding quality versus cost are made every day, and tight project budgets and short timelines often greatly reduce the interest in formalized documentation, requirements or otherwise.

This presentation discusses how testing can easily create an validated, maintainable and comprehensive set of critical information describing the system’s planned functional scope of tasks and behaviours without slowing development. The resulting artifacts can be used to directly drive testing as well – avoiding significant duplication of effort and possible confusions.
