How can we be sure we've captured all requirements?
Nov 05, 2020 Episode 11

Mark Llewellyn, Director of Technology at Osmosys Software Solutions in London asks, "How can you be sure you've captured all the requirements?"

Traditional approaches, like Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step, pretend that we can capture all the requirements upfront at the start of a project before we've started development.

Upfront requirements analysis doesn't work. 

You can't capture requirements by writing them down, and you shouldn't try to uncover requirements before your users know something about Power Apps or Dynamics 365 and your developers know something about your users.

Story mapping is an alternative method to help you capture more of your requirements. 

But you'll never capture them all. So don't try too hard, Mark.
