While I was coaching one of the teams on Requirement workshop at Valtech, I jotted down some ideas, and here they are:
1. Once the feature team completes their "Questions", "Assumptions" part , ensure to do the Show and Tell exercise
2. During Show & Tell (ST) exercise, ensure to remove the duplicate questions/assumptions immediately as soon as they are found. This would help the team to consolidate in the end
3. During ST, If anybody in the team answers the questions(from the questions column), and found to be accepted by others, move the same to "assumptions" section.
4. If you are working on UI related application, keep the mock or prototype of the screen handy. This would immensely help the teams to visualize validations/screen structure, etc
