(Re)Discover the Power of User Requirements


Recently, new work has been published by the Joint Technical Committee 1 of ISO and IEC on Software product Quality Requirements and Evaluation (SQuaRE) – Common Industry Format (CIF) for usability on user needs and user requirements. For the first time, we can draw on a consensus between engineering and usability roles on what user requirement are, their semantics and how to use them. This sounds cool, right? But unfortunately… it’s not enough. We also have to be able to understand priorities, weighting and ownership of requirements as well as organizational maturity of human-centred design activities. We will also step back to obtain a holistic view on user requirement to understand their very core natur: that they exist also without a project and that they are, when properly nourished, a treasure chest of knowledge.

Who should attend?

  • UX Practitioners
