Course Synopsis:

One of the leading causes of project failure is unclear or undefined requirements. It is pertinent for everyone associated with projects to understand how to gather requirements to ensure a successful project outcome.

This course focuses on the process of requirements gathering in an Agile environment as well as providing you the tools and techniques to record, collect and organise critical information. You will cover visual modelling and tips on how to engage stakeholders. You will understand how to differentiate the levels of requirements and how to gather the right level at the right time. This course is designed to be interactive. Participants will practice how to truly read into the full extent of what stakeholders are saying, so no requirements are overlooked.

Large requirements or too many requirements can also hinder a project’s realisation. You will learn how to break down hefty requirements and prioritise so no essential requirements are missed.
No project can succeed without properly defined and prioritised requirements. Be sure you know how to gather and manage this vital part of the project process.
