The 9 Principles of Requirements Engineering 

IIBA Brussels Chapter is eager to welcome you on Thursday the 5th of October 2021 for an exciting online session on BA Collaboration with Hans Van Loenhoud

What: The 9 Principles of Requirements Engineering
Who: Hans Van Loenhoud
When: Thursday, October 5th, 2021 - 19h00-20h00 CET
Where:  Online Session (Link will be communicated to all registered participants)

IREB – the International Requirements Engineering Board – defines a globally accepted certification scheme on various topics regarding shaping (digital) systems and solutions.
At the end of 2020, IREB published a major update of the Foundation Level for the CPRE scheme. This Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering is a personal certificate aimed at individuals working in Requirements Engineering, Business Analysis and Testing, with 60.000 people now holding a CPRE certificate.

One of the new topics in the CPRE FL 3.0 is the definition of the Fundamental Principles of Requirements Engineering, a clear set of principles that form the basis for the practices presented in the syllabus:

  1. Value-orientation: Requirements are a means to an end, not an end in itself.
  2. Stakeholders: RE is about satisfying the stakeholders’ desires and needs.
  3. Shared understanding: Successful systems development is impossible without a common basis.
  4. Context: Systems cannot be understood in isolation.
  5. Problem – Requirement – Solution: An inevitably intertwined triple.
  6. Validation: Non-validated requirements are useless.
  7. Evolution: Changing requirements are no accident, but the normal case.
  8. Innovation: More of the same is not enough.
  9. Systematic and disciplined work: We can’t do without in RE

In this webinar, Hans van Loenhoud will explain these principles and their practical significance for BA.

Join us at 19h00 on the 5th of October to increase your learning!


About our speaker: 

medium_hansvloenhoud.jpg    Hans Van Loenhoud graduated as a biologist and worked in ecological research at the University of Amsterdam.
In 1980 he switched to IT and started his career as a Cobol programmer. For more than 10 years, he was involved in development projects for customers in finance, industry and government. Later, he specialized in consultancy on data, information and quality management.
Around Y2K Hans entered the field of software testing and worked as a test manager in various development projects. He took interest in requirements engineering, during his work, because he is convinced that good requirements are a prerequisite for professional testing.

Today Hans is fully active in the world of requirements engineering. He gives training and consultancy through his own company Taraxacum and is a lecturer in Business Requirements at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. Hans is 2nd chair van IREB® and, as a member of the Foundation Level and Advanced Level Elicitation working groups, one of the authors of the pertaining syllabi and handbooks.
Hans has written several books and articles, both about testing and requirements, and is a regular speaker at (inter)national conferences.
