The legendary workshop "Mastering the Requirements Process" (next session: 13-15 June 2017) now has a sequel, especially designed to further extend your requirements capabilities. Mastering the Requirements Process gave you the techniques to discover exactly what your customers need and want for their products and to write measurable requirements.

This workshop builds on your ability by showing you how to use good requirements practices as a communication and project management tool. The workshop makes it possible for you to realise the benefits of requirements at a higher level - one where you use requirements deliverables to control your project, and produce systems that deliver the maximum possible benefits to your customers.

Using this workshop, you can build upon your superior requirements skills, and make better use of your requirements by:

  • Using your requirements deliverables as input to project management
  • Being agile - choosing the level of requirements you need for fast results
  • Assessing commercial off the shelf (COTS) software using requirements techniques
  • Exploiting requirements deliverables for risk management and cost estimation
  • Integrating creative requirements practices for innovative products
  • Maximising the value of your requirements investment
  • Taking advantage of requirements practices to enable change
  • Matching project success indicators and good requirements practices
  • Building a requirements knowledge model for communication and traceability

It is beyond argument that good requirements are crucial for good systems. This workshop is about better requirements - making yours the best they can be.

Why should you attend this workshop ?

We studied practitioners using the Volere requirements practices to assess what they needed to get an even greater advantage from their requirements projects - this workshop is the result. This is an advanced workshop that improves the skills of experienced business analysts, and teaches how to use the requirements deliverables for project management.

We show you ways of choosing the best set of requirements to give you a competitive edge and still get your product to market on time. We include techniques for quantifying the business value of your requirements investment. We show you how to anticipate market opportunities by inventing the requirements that your customers are not yet asking for. And we deal with requirements for existing systems, along with techniques for managing meta-projects - large projects made up of a number of technologies and sub-projects. The project sociology section in this workshop helps you to discover the correct stakeholders for your project, to involve them in the appropriate parts of the project, and more importantly, to keep them involved.
