Presentation Title: The Role of Clearly Communicated Requirements in Project Success”

Abstract

Whether managing a small in-house project or a large global project, obtaining good requirements determines the success or failure of a project. There is a shortage of qualified project managers and project success is slipping. A necessary requirement for collecting good requirements is clear and effective communications. The attendee learns techniques for ensuring requirements are clear and effective.

Learning Objectives

Requirements management is an effective risk mitigation and quality management strategy used early in the project planning stage. This is especially true for non-collocated projects. The project manager must build a strong core team capable of interfacing with key stakeholders in order to develop the real requirements for the project.

The attendee of this interactive seminar will:

1. Learn fundamental techniques for gathering requirements

2. Identify the difference between stated and real requirements

3. Develop a process to ensure clear and effective requirements

4. Apply the correct requirements gathering technique to the development lifecycle model

5. Implement a role based plan for good requirements
