Requirements Management Workshop Overview
Understanding the real scope of any project is vital to controlling the project. As a project manager or business analyst, it is key to first document the initial scope of the project and then direct, monitor and control the scope through Requirements Management tasks and techniques. Learning these techniques and tasks provides the ability to more easily control the quality issues, costs, time and risks associated with on-going scope creep associated with requirements changes. This course will attack the issues of requirements changes and the impending scope creep that results if left unabated.
Change is inevitable in a project — facilitating the right decisions about changes is a talent
Have you ever seen a project that launched without any change from original scope? Of course not but, by being prepared for that change, you have a better chance of a successful project launch. You will find that by implementing a Scope Management Process you increase substantially the chances of project success and stakeholder satisfaction. This workshop provides for hands-on activities to manage a case study’s requirements definition.
