Handboek requirements - Brug tussen business en ICT

By Nicole de Swart

Iedereen die te maken heeft met softwareontwikkeling kent het spanningsveld tussen company en ICT. specifications zijn daarbij een kritieke succesfactor. Hoe krijg je de juiste necessities boven water? Hoe deal with je de verwachtingen van de enterprise? Hoe leg je de necessities eenduidig big? Hoe voorkom je scope creep? Deze en andere vragen staan in het Handboek requisites centraal.

De auteur plaatst bestaande methoden en technieken in perspectief en geeft handvatten voor de praktische uitvoering ervan. In het boek geeft ze inzicht in de vele facetten van het vakgebied zoals de verschillende typen standards, het requirementsproces, de belanghebbenden, de producten en de technieken. De auteur maakt hierbij gebruik van most sensible practices op het gebied van standards improvement en requisites Management.

Het handboek is onmisbaar voor diegenen die standards opstellen en managen. Door de diepgaande beschrijving, de vele voorbeelden en de praktische information is de stof direct toepasbaar in de praktijk.

Nicole de Swart is werkzaam als Senior standards professional en adviseert revenue en non-profit organisaties bij het optimaliseren van hun requirementsprocessen. Ze geeft education at the activity aan medewerkers die requisites opstellen en heeft various opleidingen ontwikkeld. Als docent draagt ze haar kennis en praktijkervaring graag over op vakgenoten. Voor meer informatie over de auteur en dit boek zie

De Swart uit hoe belangrijk 'requirements' zijn. Logisch omdat het hier gaat om de benodigdheden en vereisten die het ICT-product (bijvoorbeeld software program) moet bevatten om zodoende te voldoen in kwalitatief opzicht. Met andere woorden: als het product onvoldoende kwaliteit biedt, heeft de organisatie er niets of weinig aan. De auteur legt nogal omstandig uit wat een ICT-product moet kunnen. En uiteraard vernemen we ook hoe de gevolgen kunnen zijn als het product niet op de vereisten (requirements) ingaat (foute investering!). In het boek wordt gedetailleerd uiteengezet welke processen er denkbaar zijn die de kwaliteit van het ICT-product vergroten. Het is geen gemakkelijk boek geworden. Voor specialisten in ICT en -ontwikkeling en binnen de ondernemingen zijn er vele aspecten van belang. De bedoeling van het boek snijdt ook zeker hout: te veel organisaties hebben tonnen tot miljoenen verloren bij foute beslissingen bij het aanschaffen van ICT-bedrijfsmiddelen. Derhalve een specialistisch, maar praktisch werk. Met talrijke schema's, een aantal bijlagen, waaronder een verklarende woordenlijst, een literatuuropgave en een sign in. Verder wordt verwezen naar een vrij toegankelijke web site met onder meer informatie over opleidingen en aanvullend materiaal op dit boek.
