    Topic Description:

    Many, if not most, projects suffer from scope creep, disappointed stakeholders, and runaway budgets. Gathering requirements is essential to a successful project, yet many projects find missing requirements and gaping assumptions when they enter the development phase. You don’t have to take years to get sound and agreed upon requirements. You just have to approach your requirements gathering phase with different conversational skills and a different mindset. Learn how people think and what approach works to break down the barriers inherent in the requirements phase. You will leave this session with a roadmap to successful requirements gathering. You’ll move from hoping you know the requirements to have assurance in knowing you do while running a project with happier stakeholders and satisfied team members.

    This Session Qualifies for: 
    Strategic
