Whether your project is agile or not, it is critical that you practice good requirement and/or user story management. Requirements and user stories do not just exist by themselves. Instead, they are linked to other artifacts such as test cases and test sets, scenarios and/or acceptance criteria, code and design components, tasks, risks, and actions. Requirements and user stories also change during the course of a project and over the lifecycle of an application. Some requirements or user stories originate from user requests, some evolve from bug reports or issues, and some are even enhancements to existing functionalities. A good requirement/user story management tool must support all these aspects of features.

This webinar will demonstrate how the requirement / user story component of Rommana ALM supports all these aspects and more. The intent is to help you understand true requirement and user story management so that you can make an informed decision regarding tool selection and tool adoption. If you are already using a tool to manage your requirements and/or user stories, this webinar should help you customize your tool to support all these aspects.
