Requirements Engineering

Companies pay a premium of up to 60% on time and budget when they use poor requirements practices on their products. Requirements engineering (RE) is the process of defining, documenting and maintaining requirements. Event though we live in the Agile World, this does not mean that changes and iterations should not be properly documented.

Read my articles Lean Requirements and Lean Roadmap to understand the basic principles of RE. If you want to increase your knowledge in this field , you can read my summaries on the following books: Information Architecture Essentials, Lean Customer Development, Mapping the User Experience and Hooked.

Book Summaries

Books have become underestimated in this "era of the Tweet," but I think they are fundamental to approach a subject in a full and 360 degrees way, without forgetting important details. Books, however, are also long to read. When I study a book, I almost always take notes to store the information better. Here is a list of books I've read and summarized.
