Taking your requirements to the next level. This workshop shows you how to build on your existing expertise and integrate requirements into project management for the maximum effect. .
The last five years have seen considerable improvements in the techniques and processes we use to gather and communicate requirements. Our Volere requirements template has been used by a wide variety of organisations all over the world. The successful application of many things like connecting analysis modelling to requirements, requirements templates, fit criteria for individual requirements, quality gateway testing techniques and trawling techniques, have highlighted other areas where we need to improve our requirements skills.
This workshop extends what you know about requirements and gives you ways of taking your projects to a higher level of requirements excellence.
In this workshop we show you ways of choosing the best set of requirements to give you a competitive edge and still get your product to market on time, this includes techniques for quantifying the business value of investing in requirements. We also address the need to anticipate market opportunities by creating and inventing visionary requirements. And we address the question of dealing with requirements for existing systems along with techniques for managing meta projects large projects made up of a number of smaller ones.
