Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 70!

The interview on the SPaMCAST 70 is with Suzanne Robertson.  We talked about requirements . . . a lot and that was good therefore this part one of the interview.

Suzanne is co-author of Mastering the Requirements Process (Addison-Wesley Second Edition 2006) a book that provides guidance on finding requirements and writing them so that they can be understood by all the stakeholders. She has more than 30 years experience in systems specification and building. Her courses on requirements, systems analysis, design and problem solving are well known for their innovative workshops and business games.

Suzanne has varied experience as a manager, programmer, analyst, and designer. She has consulted, done research and taught in Europe, Australia, the Far East and the United States. Current work includes research and consulting on stakeholder rights and responsibilities, the specification and reuse of requirements and techniques for assessing requirements specifications. The product of this research is Volere, a complete requirements process and template for assessing requirements quality, and for specifying business requirements.
