Tom Gilb Keynote

I attended the Keynote Presentation by Tom Gilb at the International Workshop on Requirements Analysis (IWRA 2010) at Middlesex University. Tom's Keynote, entitled What's Wrong with Requirements Methods included many examples of software projects with scarily large budgets where the requirements were vague and focus on software form and function rather than concrete measurable business drivers. He offered a definition of Requirement: Stakeholder Valued End-State and associated decomposition onto a hierarchy of requirement-types that is intended to be more useful than the ubiquitous functional and non-functional categories of requirements. Tom's recent work includes the requirements engineering language Planguage and the associated book Competitive Engineering.
