Course Description

A proper set of requirements are the backbone of all successful projects. Poor requirements inevitably lead to poor project performance. Requirements provide the essential link between the goal of the project and the design of outputs and products. They are the only proper basis for your project's quality efforts and are the first line of defense against scope creep. Poor requirements, by themselves, lead to rework and subsequent schedule and budget overruns, flawed designs, failed quality and testing programs, and customer dissatisfaction.

This course teaches participants how to elicit, characterize, document, analyze, validate, verify and manage requirements for new projects, products and services. This is a must have for anyone who will be part of delivering or managing a project and includes tools, flowcharts and courseware that leverage industry best practices for successfully managing and delivering requirements to stakeholders..

Course participants receive a course manual and CD with tools and templates for gathering, recording, and managing requirements.
