Mastering Requirements Gathering

Course Overview

A proper set of requirements is the backbone of all successful projects. Poor requirements inevitably lead to poor project performance. Requirements provide the essential link between the goal of the project and the design of outputs and products.

This course teaches participants how to elicit, characterize, document, analyze, validate, verify, and manage requirements for new projects, products, and services.

Participants will learn how to define and document high-level business requirements, identify user classes and representatives, select elicitation techniques, differentiate and prioritize functional and non-functional requirements from users, identify business rules, and review and verify project requirements with stakeholders.

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for project managers, project team members, senior managers, business analysts, and any team members responsible for gathering information and required details for project deliverables.
