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 a number of 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.
