Eliciting and Managing Requirements is designed for individuals responsible for doing just that—eliciting requirements from users and stakeholders and managing those requirements throughout solution development. The course looks at the processes around solution scope validation, collaborative elicitation, modeling the solution, documenting effective requirements, solution validation, requirements change management, and how to plan the work necessary to successfully drive the whole process.
After the scope of a solution to a business problem has been proposed and accepted, the work (typically project-based) of designing and developing that solution must commence. This course explores how the discipline of business analysis contributes to the work of a project, ensuring that the requirements of the solution being developed are fully elicited from, communicated to, and understood by all stakeholders involved. Additionally, the course discusses how business analysis in the context of a project ensures that the solution developed fulfills the intended scope as well as covers considerations for managing requirements (and changes to those requirements) throughout their effective lifecycle.
A participant does not have to be a formally titled business analyst to benefit from Eliciting and Managing Requirements. Many formal project and program managers find themselves being asked to apply business analysis to project work to ensure that what is developed actually solves the problem it was intended to. Anyone responsible for delivering specific outcomes that meet business needs or solve problems can benefit from this course.
