Colin Hammond, MEng, MBCS, CFPS

Details:

Software projects, especially large ones are notorious for delay, and in many cases complete failure. Often the root cause of this is poor quality and misunderstood requirements. This talk is about a fresh approach to driving quality using a new tool that helps requirements authors improve user story quality at incredible speed. The tool simultaneously provides an ISO standard metric of software size which can be used by project managers to bring measurability and certainty into their projects.
