Quality Storming

Quality Storming

In various communities, several methods for the collaborative modeling of business requirements have been established in recent years. Well-known examples are EventStorming or Domain Storytelling. These approaches are based on achieving a better shared understanding of the business requirements in an interdisciplinary way. But what about the requirements for the quality of the software being developed? Especially here, a collaborative approach is immensely important in order to avoid chasing after imperfect ideals that cause the costs and complexity of products to explode. This is where the workshop format Quality Storming comes in, which I would like to introduce in the course of this presentation.
