Volere is the name given to a collection of requirements resources, templates and techniques that have been developed based on research, application and experience from worldwide business analysis for over 15 years. It is a common and easily accessible way of discovering requirements, communicating them and connecting them to solutions. It can easily be tailored to suit your project and works with all types of methods and approaches, including Agile.
Volere is used in six of the seven continents and since its introduction in 1995 the Volere approach to requirements has been used by thousands of projects. These range from the conventional commercial domains such as banking, insurance to more exotic areas such as air traffic control, aviation, automotive engineering and many more. The list of organisations using Volere components is impressive and includes American Express, Federal Express, Hewlett-Packard, Royal Mail (UK), Eurocontrol, to name just a few. A more comprehensive list is available on the Volere website.
Volere is developed by James Robertson and Suzanne Robertson, principals of the Atlantic Systems Guild, requirements practitioners and authors of books on requirements including Mastering the Requirements Process. Today there is a large Volere community, network of consultants, instructors and agents around the world, who practice, contribute and improve the Volere Requirements Knowledge Model and are available and qualified to help you get better value for your investment in requirements.
There is an active community of Volere users who regular contribute to discussions in the Volere LinkedIn Group. Volere also offer courses including the flagship Mastering the Requirements Process, Specification and Requirements Reviews, Requirements Process Design, and Consulting to make you better at requirements and business analysis.
Existing tools do offer varying levels of support for Volere but they fall short of offering the required level of support for the processes, templates and techniques and do not offer an out-of-the-box implementation. Yonix is working with Volere to uniquely offer this to our customers. Our first release for Volere support will be in late 2011/early 2012. This release will include:
