A major source of project failure is incomplete, inaccurate, and misunderstood requirements. In a nutshell, if you don't identify the "right" requirements for a project, problems will be magnified at every other step of the process.

The bottom line is that nailing down requirements for your initiatives is a high-stakes activity, even more so during a recession where every penny counts.

Faced with conflicting requests from customers, users, partners, competitors, and regulators—the role of the business analyst to define and prioritize requirements, foresee related impacts, and create actionable plans is critical.

In this Webcast, you’ll find out about the due diligence needed to keep projects on track using the tools of business analysis.

What You Will Learn

Whether you’re an experienced project manager or are just starting out, this program will help fine tune your understanding the basics of requirements management, including:
  • Leading causes of project failure and what you can do to minimize the risks
  • How business analysis is the key to trimming project costs
  • Ways to turn unrealistic expectations into realistic features
  • Using BABOK to improve your requirements development
  • How business analysis differs from project management
  • And much more.
