About the Authors
  • Business managers often find it impossible to communicate business objectives and specify their software requirements to technical members of staff. This beginner's guide to the Unified Modeling Language (UML) - the standard for documenting software designs - teaches readers to communicate with software developers in a more focused, effective way. It describes the basic diagrams of the UML modeling notation and shows how they are used to specify requirements in an unambiguous way. When applied on a project, the risk of failure through unclear requirements is removed. If you are a non-technical person with a stake in the success of a software project, this book is for you. Milan Kratochvil has worked as an IT-consultant, instructor and writer in methodology for nearly twenty-five years, focusing on areas where IT and business intersect. Barry McGibbon is a principal consultant for Princeton Softech.

    • First book of its kind, focuses only on software requirements
    • Empowers non-technical members of staff to communicate their needs to and check the work of software developers
    • Slim volume, practical approach makes book ideal for business travel reading
