Aligning Requirements and Testing : Working Together toward the Same Goal

Bjarnason, Elizabeth LU and Borg, Markus LU (2017) In IEEE Software 34(1). p.20-23
Abstract

The proper alignment of requirements engineering and testing (RET) can be key to software's success. Three practices can provide effective RET alignment: using test cases as requirements, harvesting trace links, and reducing distances between requirements engineers and testers. The Web extra https://youtu.be/M65ZKxfxqME is an audio podcast of author Elizabeth Bjarnason reading the the Requirements column she cowrote with Markus Borg.
