About the Course
The crux of “getting it right” on any project is the ability to give stakeholders what they ask for. Or is it? Of course, that depends on what they ask for. As consultative project professionals, it’s our job to help align what stakeholders ask for with what the organization needs. We are tasked with understanding and getting their buy in for what they need, which may or may not be consistent with what they tell us they want.
This course helps you develop skills and learn techniques to efficiently and effectively elicit requirements. From preparing for elicitation sessions to getting consensus, students work through multiple facets of the requirements gathering challenge. It provides a framework for identifying business problems and linking requirements to business objectives in order to solve business problems and set project scope. The approach taken is applicable to all types of requirements gathering efforts, including, but not limited to, systems development projects.
