Make more from your requirements
We studied practitioners using the Volere requirements practices to assess what they needed to get an even greater advantage from their requirements projects—this workshop is the result. This is an advanced course: it improves the skills of experienced business analysts, and teaches how to use the requirements deliverables for project management.
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. We include techniques for quantifying the business value of your requirements investment. We show you how to anticipate market opportunities by inventing the requirements that your customers are not yet asking for. And we deal with requirements for existing systems, along with techniques for managing meta-projects—large projects made up of many technologies and sub-projects. The project sociology section in this seminar helps you to discover the correct stakeholders for your project, to involve them in the appropriate parts of the project, and more importantly, keep them involved.
Extending your requirements capabilities
Mastering the Requirements Process gave you the requirements discovery and communication techniques to discover exactly what your customers need and want for their products and to write measurable requirements. This seminar, Mastering the Requirements Process part II builds on your ability by showing you how to use good requirements management practices as a communication and project management tool. The seminar makes it possible for you to realise the benefits of requirements at a higher level – one where you use requirements deliverables to control your project, and produce systems that deliver the maximum possible benefits to your customers.
Who Should Attend
