Here are just a few impressions I’ve jotted down over the past few weeks that may never evolve into full blog posts, but that I wanted to share just the same. Please feel free to chime in with your support or challenges to my list, or with your own observances.
Here are some great product links and quotes on rapid UI prototyping that have helped reinforce the value of visualized requirements in my mind, and that I thought you might find interesting.
Bob Lambert says IT should take the initiative in solving problems of business/IT misalignment, and thinks the requirements process can be an effective vehicle for reaching out. I agree.
I could come up with a number of reasons why IT has an interest in being the one to reach out, but one reason in particular occurred to me as I was reading through Lambert’s post….
Adrian Marchis at Modern Analyst posted a helpful article on process mapping describing, among other things, diagramming the “as-is” process as part of the overall process mapping exercise.
A very interesting and active discussion has followed concerning whether modeling the “as-is” process is valuable, or a waste of time and effort.
