Description

This workshop extends the foundations laid in the Mastering the Requirements Process course by showing you how to choose the best set of requirements to give you a competitive edge—and still get your product to market on time. The instructor covers techniques for quantifying the business value of investing in requirements as well as the need to anticipate market opportunities by creating and inventing visionary requirements. You’ll also learn to deal with requirements for existing systems along with techniques for managing meta projects (large projects made up of a number of smaller ones).

A good requirements engineer has the skill of helping a wide variety of people communicate with each other. The project sociology structure in this seminar helps you to discover the correct stakeholders for your project. You’ll also walk away with proven techniques to facilitate their involvement in the appropriate parts of the project and, even more importantly, how to help them stay involved throughout.

Extending Requirements: A Practical Workshop expands what you know about requirements and shows you how to take your projects to a higher level of requirements excellence.

Who Should Attend
Business analysts, systems mangers, project leaders, consultants, systems analysts, and planners. The material is designed for experienced requirements engineers who are already familiar with business events, product use cases, context models, functional requirements, non-functional requirements, constraints, and the Volere requirements template. Learn more about the Volere template here.
