“Today everything — every part of an application — is a business requirement. Waiting around for business experts to answer questions, when they have many other responsibilities, is a delay that almost no one can afford anymore.
We all have to go fast.
And we all need the business expertise and customer awareness built into our teams.”
Isn’t that the truth? This powerful statement comes from our own Jonathan Fries, VP of Engineering and Digital Transformation at Exadel, in an article written for Business2Community. In this article, Jonathan discusses the way that the lines between technical requirements and business requirements are blurred. In fact, in this day and age, they are becoming one and the same. Jonathan suggests agile development methods as a proper response to this new reality. Also, citing a book written by Jeff Sutherland and J.J. Sutherland, “The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time,” Jonathan says there’s a need for product owners to balance time talking to end users and time to work with developers behind the scenes.
