Beyond Requirements shows how to use business analysis practices and techniques to identify key business problems, find optimal solutions, and successfully implement them. Unlike most business analysis texts, it places analysis techniques in context, positioning them as a "means to the end" of solving organizational problems, not as an end in themselves. Kent McDonald helps you integrate analysis with ideas and techniques from other domains to significantly increase your effectiveness. He also covers crucial topics ignored by many business analysis books, including enterprise analysis, stakeholder analysis, and linkages to agile methodologies. If you're a business analyst, McDonald will help you transform your role and deepen your value to the organization. If you aren't an analyst, McDonald will empower you to leverage analytical techniques to solve your own business problems, and increase your own impact on the enterprise. Whatever your role, Beyond Requirements will help you clarify hidden risks and opportunities, collaborate and measure progress more effectively, provide better decision-making support, and formulate more successful strategy.
Analysing both national and transnational processes, this volume offers an integrated viewpoint of the principles governing the procedural due process requirements of regional and global regulatory regimes.

Traditionally the issues concerning the exercise of administrative powers by public authorities were considered a type of national enclave. It was the responsibility of the state to ensure that adequate procedural safeguards were in place to prevent the government from interfering with the rights of its citizens. During the last few decades, however, a variety of sets of rules regarding procedural due process has developed to govern the conduct of those public authorities who operate on a regional or world regulatory footing, such as the European Union and the World Trade Organization. Analysing the procedural due process requirements applicable to administrative procedure beyond the borders of the States, this volume demonstrates how regional and global regulatory regimes impose requirements that are strikingly similar to those set out by the most developed legal systems of the world. The book argues that such requirements of administrative procedure are justified not only by the traditional concerns for the protection of individual interests against the misuse of power by public authorities, but also by other values, such as good governance and cooperation between public authorities. Finally, the book conceptualizes such rules as legal requirements which arbitral tribunals and other agencies should respect when interpreting standards of justice.

The challenges and opportunities inherent in the expanding role of software and in Agile development have caused an evolution in our understanding of requirements development (RD). The purpose of this book is to share new RD perspectives and pragmatic techniques based on this evolving understanding.The book provides new perspectives on the goals and strategies of RD as well as the nature of requirements information and understanding. It describes the limitations of uniform approaches to requirements (e.g., Waterfall or Agile) and provides rationale and details so that you can use these new perspectives in your RD activities.Current RD books thoroughly cover the tasks, techniques, and tools of requirements elicitation, analysis, specification, and validation. While this information is valuable in dealing with many situations, these books omit or contain inadequate information about:¿Stakeholder understanding¿Demonstrations of developer understanding¿Quality attributesoSupporting and conflicting relationships oGoal definitionsoAchievement strategies oVerification strategies¿Mixed requirements strategies¿Requirements management¿Requirements risk analysis and managementThe references in each chapter include material from articles and books. All referenced articles are freely available on the book¿s website. The 3D quality model described in chapter 3 is freely available at www.quality-aware.com/daves-q-a-stuff.php.This book is meant to help experienced practitioners improve their requirements practices and those of their team. Product owners and managers, as well as project managers, should find the content especially useful since they are often responsible for requirements development and management. Other potential readers include requirements leads, technical leads, analysts, testers and other verifiers, quality support staff, developers, consultants, and customers.
