Ellen Gottesdiener's "Software Requirements Memory Jogger" contains an incredible wealth of clearly-presented requirements information in a small-format book. This inch-thick "pocket book" is easy to carry around and browse through when a busy requirements analyst has a few minutes to spare.
Ellen addresses all aspects of the requirements engineering process: elicitation, analysis, specification, validation, and management. Each chapter contains a wealth of practical techniques that can help any software team improve how it deals with requirements. Ellen describes a plethora of requirements "models," ways to represent different types of requirements-related information. Every technique is placed in a context so the reader can learn why to use it, what it does, and how to do it. The book presents scores of practical tips, based on Ellen's vast experience working with actual teams to develop requirements for software products.

We have a small boutique consulting group that helps companies be more agile and adaptive and were honored to receive one of the first copies of Software Requirments Memory Jogger. Recently, we sent two of our consultants on the road to help different clients work on gathering requirements and mapping business processes.

It provides the actual techniques that will make your life easier, your processes more documentable and your results more reliable. Buy two; one for you and for one of your most important stakeholders - or if you are like me, buy one for everyone in the office.
The new Software Requirements Memory Jogger by Ellen Gottesdiener is a must for every business analyst and project manager who deals with requirements management -- and that's probably everyone.
Its compact format makes it a valuable reference to have available for a quick review, and its low cost makes it a good personal tool for every team member involved in requirements activities.
The book is logically organized into the major activities of requirements management: preparation (Ellen calls this 'setting the stage'), elicitation, analysis, specification, validation, and requirements management. Each major activity has a large number of applicable tools that create the appropriate outputs for that activity. Within the elicitation activity there are at least 10 tools, and each one is described in enough detail to provide a perspective for appropriateness in your own project situation. All the activities are detailed in this fashion, and the book also has... read more
