A better way to define and communicate software requirements and test cases

PowerStory – A better way to define and communicate software requirements and test cases, by Avoiding the Broken Telephone game.

When you were younger, did you ever play the “broken telephone” game? You know, where someone whispers something into someone’s ear, who in turn whispers what they heard into someone else’s ear…and so on and so on, until you get to the last person in the chain. Inevitably when that last person is asked to repeat what they heard, it is nothing like what the first person said.

Well, believe it or not that’s how we currently define and communicate our software requirements and test cases today, which leads to higher project costs and rework.

This presentation is about how PowerStory can help you avoid this insanity.
Our Speaker is Martin Crisp
CEO – PowerStory

Martin has spent the past 6 years in the requirements definition and management space first as CTO of Blueprint Software and now as CEO of PowerStory. Prior to that Martin held CTO positions in other startup’s starting in 2002. Martin also has extensive experience selling and delivering large system’s integration projects while working for EDS, Accenture and Deloitte Consulting for the first 10 years of his career. Martin was also a founder of eMersion, which was an eBusiness Consulting company, later sold to Deloitte Consulting.
