Does the Agile Manifesto Make Initial Requirements Obsolete?-by Michelle Carson

NOTE: This meeting will be held at Papa Johns Headquarters.

Does the Agile Manifesto make initial requirements obsolete? Are gathering requirements applicable to Agile? The Agile Manifesto principles might seem to downplay traditional requirements gathering. How much is enough? What items are addressed in requirements gathering? How detailed should the initial requirements be?

Come join us in a discussion on concepts and tools used for successful requirements gathering in an Agile environment.

    Hope everyone can make it tomorrow! I looked on Google Maps today and saw it takes you to a back entrance, so I created some maps quickly to show where to park and where the guest entrance is. Map from 64/Blankenbaker to the building:
