Overview

By identifying and managing successful requirements, business analysts and project managers can better manage customers’ expectations and satisfy their needs. Requirements discovery is the first step to a successful project. This workshop focuses on the skills necessary to thoroughly gather requirements from users, procedures, system components, and various business documents. Quality requirements statements are the next step in a successful project. So, participants will learn best practice techniques to write specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and traceable, requirements statements. Finally, requirements must be properly communicated, validated and signed off to achieve a successful project outcome. By the end of this course, participants will have accomplished all three. Overall the workshop is designed to give participants the skills, hands-on application and confidence they need to tackle any project by producing and gaining approval for a quality requirements document. We encourage all clients to take advantage of the pre and post assessment aligned to this program.
