That I don’t recall. I know we said, “a strong name and 4 values is pretty good, but what could lie underneath that?” and someone proposed principles. We were running out of time and energy and agreement, so it wasn’t a tight process. I don’t recall a discussion of how many there should be, but clearly 10-12 is an upper limit. Someone just proposed one and we wandered around having discussions. There was not complete agreement, people started leaving, and we tried unsuccessfully to close it out by email, but that didn’t work, so we just published the closest approximation to what we had at the time. Ergo, not a tightly revised set of words, but best-3nd-round writing. Cheers
I have had Writing Effective Use Cases since seeing so many of my colleagues use it around 2009. I am putting together an event about Requirements Engineering for NY SPIN, one of the longest running grassroots associations of technology professionals in NYC dedicated to promoting knowledge of software process improvement. Requirements Engineering is a topic we always come back to, because it is so fundamental. Your work continues to make a major contribution to the field. We would be honored to start a conversation with you about speaking to our association in 2017-2018.

He would perform better at the next edition of the tournament, advancing on the first round after eliminating sambo champion Suren Balachinskiy. Overeem earned a yellow card for holding the ropes to avoid a takedown at one point, but he made up by outstriking Suren and focusing on kicking his injured leg, finishing the match by knee strikes. Valentijn then advanced further by beating famed luta livre practitioner Renato Sobral in an upset. Despite Overeem being almost knocked out by an illegal punch from Sobral while they were in a leglock exchange, the Dutch fighter got composed after a break and quickly locked a keylock on Sobral, making him tap out. After eliminating Yoshihisa Yamamoto by armbar in under one minute, Overeem continued advancing, and got another upset by choking out Randy Couture in a failed takedown. The final match of the tournament was against Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira himself, with Overeem submitted again in similar time.
