Class Description

One of the measures of project success is customer (stakeholder) satisfaction. But how do you accurately measure and manage requirements that seem so intangible, especially when the success of the whole project depends on it? This unique course combines the requirements-related processes from PMI's PMBOK® Guide and the IIBA's BABOK® Guide (Business Analysis Body of Knowledge) into an easy, six-step process. In addition to Tricks of the Trade® for eliciting requirements, this course also offers templates designed to obtain BETTER requirements—as well as techniques for gaining cooperation from managers, customers and all stakeholders throughout the requirements process.
