Requirements the Agile Way

Sharing the Best Ways to handle “Requirements” in Agile

Agile Carolinas meeting: May 17, 2022 – at 5:30 pm.  IN-PERSON.

FREE FOOD! (For the first 20 people.)

Thirty people signed up so far (between here and MeetUp).

Note: We need help doing Hybrid in a decent way.  (We need a VOLUNTEER or 2.)



Unclear requirements are always a problem.  Always hard in a way.

So, let’s discuss how we are doing “requirements” in an agile way.  What is working or not working for you?

I know some ideas will be mentioned most of you have not considered.


Here are some ideas.  And we want everyone to share.


  • can be done verbally
  • can be done via pictures
  • can be done as lists
  • related to DOR
  • PO has some responsibility
  • Developers have responsibility (to insist they have enough)
  • Jeff Sutherland suggests an enabling specification (see here]
  • do them as a flow.  8 stories are ready-ready just before the sprint starts
  • some people use templates
  • Definition of Ready!
  • DOR might define types of info needed (sometimes).  Devs must decide per story
  • Lean UX can be part of it
  • Business side engaged (part-time, a bunch of people)
  • Feedback and Continuous Improvement Loop
  • Etc, etc.

Please come and share your ideas and questions.

Immediate Goals: Developers have less uncertainty and higher motivation.  Fewer examples of mis-communication as we do the demo in the Sprint Review.

Goal of session: You take away some ideas to experiment with to raise the productivity and effectiveness of your Team.  Customers become happier.

See you there!


We need volunteers!

* Sponsors

* Venue

* Food

* HYBRID. Probably need 2-3 for this.

For the first three items, maybe two people can rotate by month.
