Non Functional Requirements in Agile Software Development

Date of Event: 
Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 5:30pm

Functional requirements (FR) are a primary focus of Agile software development while non-functional requirements (NFR) are often not emphasized. However, good quality software needs to consider both FR and NFR. Lack of attention to NFR has been documented to be the cause of many software failures. The "NERV Methodology: Non-Functional Requirements Elicitation, Reasoning, and Validation in Agile Processes" can potentially benefit Agile software development organizations in addressing NFR.
