Developing & Confirming Effective Business Requirements

Plan and Manage the Software Development life cycle more effectively. Prevent errors, manage creeping scope, and increase customer satisfaction.

Proven Processes for Development, Delivery and Support

You may have the best design and development team in the world, but if your business requirements are vague, incorrect, or simply incomplete, you will end up with problems. Those problems will cost you time and money to correct. The process of gathering a quality set of business requirements often does not keep pace with the needs of today's users. Many products fail at the customer site and cost many hours and dollars to correct and maintain. A lack of understanding users´┐Ż needs, a lack of input from key personnel, and failure to implement the product in the user's environment costs companies money-and clients. Improving the process from the beginning could prevent much of this cost and risk. This two-day course will help you identify and improve your process of software product development, delivery and support.

Gather Clear and Concise Business Requirements Before the Project Starts

In this workshop you will discover how to better understand your users' needs, not their wants. You will learn how to overcome semantic obstacles and how to better use the resources you have available. Identifying and involving key personnel and knowing where and when they are important to a project is critical, and we'll examine the crucial steps you need to take to make this happen. You'll also learn how to apply new methodologies to create a solid strategy for gathering clear and concise business requirements prior to the start of project design.
