Realistic Project Scoping Course


SKU: RPS Category: Tags: ,


A live online instructor-led course held over three mornings on the subject of discovering and describing the scope of a project.

Business Analysts and Projects Managers are often pressured and challenged to obtain a strong foundational understanding of the scope of a project that is sufficient enough to enable effective planning or portfolio analysis or to start the project, while not getting too detailed — and often with little time and subject matter resources available.

Knowing the methods, best practices, and techniques to quickly and easily elicit or validate the vision, objectives and scope of a project can be an invaluable skill.

In agile environments, the scope is variable and will change through sprints and refinements to the product backlog, but an initial understanding of the boundaries of the product and main prioritized features that make up the minimum viable product is critical to an effective agile project.

With IAG’s Live Virtual Training, you get to learn from our leading experts on business analysis, requirements and architecture with the convenience and cost effectiveness of being online. From IAG’s state-of-the-art telepresence facilities, our instructors provide an interactive, video and web-based experience that puts you right in the classroom but with the convenience of being online!
