This is learning, so, sit back and enjoy

Can AI Really Write Your User Requirements?

Part 1: Requirements Gathering

Chris Rickard and I discuss:

  • Understanding the User Requirements and capturing them accurately is critical to the success of any project. What is the process for finding User Requirements?
  • Once you’ve captured requirements and had them signed off, is that it? Is Requirements Gathering a one-and-done process?
  • How can AI help in the process of capturing and recording customer or user requirements?

Part 2: Userdoc Demonstration

Chris demonstrates how Userdoc uses AI and how Userdoc captures and develops User requirements.

Part 3: Artificial Intelligence

  • How can an AI system really understand a process and what we need from it?
  • AI capability is changing fast. What would you hope to be able to do in future iterations?

Part 4: Getting in touch with Chris Rickard

  • Thank you, Chris. If people want to learn more about Userdoc, and give it a try for themselves, how can they do that? And, if they want to engage with you, what are the best ways they can do that?

Chris Rickard

Chris Rickard is a project manager and software engineer, who started a software development agency in 2012, and had to teach himself to be a project manager and business analyst, to successfully deliver his projects.

His agency delivered large, often 12-month or more projects. He found that requirements gathering and requirements management were the tasks that had the most impact on the success of a project.

After 8 years Chris’s agency was acquired, and he then focused on building a platform to help with requirements management. That platform is called Userdoc, and it makes effective use of AI to help businesses move faster.

That’s why I wanted to speak with him about whether AI can write your user requirements.

What Kit does a Project Manager Need?

I asked Project Managers in a couple of forums what material things you need to have, to do your job as a Project Manager. They responded magnificently. I compiled their answers into a Kit list. I added my own.
