Stop calling requirements ‘non-functional’!

You want deliveries that don’t function?

Why name it wrong? Call it what it is!

If you look closer at non-functional requirements, they fall into two groups:

1️⃣ Operational requirements 🚀

Just like Function requirements, it describes what users can observe at runtime: the behavior. But we focus more on how it does this, like Performance and Availability.

2️⃣ Developmental requirements 🛠️

Users can’t observe these, but they are also important. These are developmental qualities, requirements from the development team. Like Maintainability, Portability, and guidelines.
