Central Indiana May 2019 Chapter Meeting
Join us for our Central Indiana Chapter of IIBA May Chapter meeting to learn about UX and storytelling! Michael Miserendino will present on User Experience which is invaluable in Business Analysis!
Effective Storytelling with User Requirements
In a world where technology permeates everyday life, and products grow with increasing complexity, the pressure is on to better understand what people need. Often the success or failure of a project is connected with inaccurate or insufficient requirements definition or management.
Stories are a great way to help with this at all phases of the development process, however stories formed without knowing the people who will use your product or their context of use, may be a work of fiction that may mislead or misinform. This talk will explore how to make your stories useful and engage your entire team to drive development of products people want to buy, while avoiding the pitfalls of creating fiction.
