Do you want to develop software that makes you work more efficiently and helps reach your business objectives? Are you unsure which functionalities and features this software should have? A Software Requirements Sprint might be the answer for you! We will guide you through the process of creating a set of functionalities that the software should have as a minimum. This will give a good overview so that you can put the first version of your Minimum Viable Product (MVP) into production.
Why choose for a Software Requirements Sprint?
To make your software development process successful, you will need to have a clear overview of your stakeholders' requirements and wishes. This is often done through functional design.
Our approach is different. In a one or two-day Software Requirements Sprint, we will meet with you and your stakeholders to create a thorough inventory of functional requirements and wishes. This input is sufficient to be able to develop a first version of the software. This will kickstart your project to developing the software yourself or outsourcing it.
Central to our approach is the interaction with the customer: we will define the functional requirements and wishes together. This means no major functional design in advance, but a continuous collaboration.
How do we help you?
Joining the Software Requirements Sprint will be one or more of your product or domain specialists, one of our software engineers, and a requirements engineer who will lead the sprint. Thanks to their many years of experience, our requirements engineers know how to trigger all attendees to systematically divide the product into so-called 'user stories'. A user story describes an action that a user must be able to perform when working with the software. By writing down and prioritizing all these user stories, we form a comprehensible functional description of the product - together!
The end result of the sprint is a user story map, consisting of:
- An overview of the user stories (functionalities) of the software to be developed.
- Insight into the priorities of these stories.
- A first indication of the size of the project.
- The definition of a possible Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
