RE@Anywhere! On the future of requirements engineering.


Recently, the Requirements Engineering Qualifiactions Board (REQB) and the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) have joined forces. They continue together under the name of IREB.

IREB offers a broad training and certification scheme, starting with a common Foundation Level, containing several specialized modules at the Advanced Level and (coming soon) capped with an Expert Level.

This scheme comprises all steps of the fundamental Requirements Engineering process: elicitation & consolidation, documentation & modelling, validation & negotiation, and requirements management.

IREB develops a new module to service the needs of modern development, called RE@Agile. It builds a bridge between the Requirements Engineering world and the Agile community.

In this development, IREB sees a shift in the focus of requirements engineering from descriptive to creative, from elicitation to solutions. We summarize it in a 4 sentence RE Manifesto and map these sentences on the Kano model. This is valid for both Agile and traditional project, hence RE@Anywhere.
