Our non-functional requirements workshop is a practical, hands on workshop aimed at making eliciting and analysing non-functional requirements easier.
Attendees of this course will gain a hands-on introduction to the elicitation, analysis and documentation of Non-Functional Requirements. They will get a chance to practise the theory during the course, and will be provided with practical, succinct and useful course material which they can refer to after the course.
Course Duration: 1 Day
