"I'm Not There" is an award winning biographical film about the artist formerly known as Robert Allen Zimmerman. Though none of the six main characters explicitly represent Bob Dylan, they each manage to convey a different quality about the 60's music legend. Collectively, the six 'not Bob Dylans' do a better job of capturing the essence of the man than any single literal portrayal ever could. This unconventional narrative provides the perfect metaphor for the BABOK task, Organize Requirements.
The purpose of organizing requirements is to create a set of views of the requirements for a new business solution that are comprehensive, complete, consistent, and understood from all stakeholder perspectives. As stated in the BABOK, the objectives of this task are to understand which models are appropriate for the business domain and solution scope, and to identify model interrelationships and dependencies.
This entertaining presentation examines the five concepts that are key to requirements modeling and demonstrates how they are captured using four specific techniques: use cases, data models, state diagrams and business rules. You'll not only learn the fundamentals of each technique, but how to combine them in a way that each model can be used to verify the other. Like the six "not Bob Dylans", the resulting set of complimentary models creates a more complete and holistic view of the solution than any literal description ever could.
