How Does it Work? What Would We Expect?
One Senior Consultant acts as the facilitator, leading the Requirements Discovery Sessions and keeping the sessions on-track.
Other Senior BA Consultants are responsible for the various models and work products and keeping the project on-track.
All sessions involve at least two of our consultants. This is known as paired analysis and, in addition to producing immediate and tangible results, both play an active role coaching & mentoring the IT analysts during the engagement.
IAG’s Requirements Consultants are seasoned experts in Business Analysis and Software Engineering best practices. We use specific methods and practices that have been proven to be effective at ensuring the meetings are focused and productive, and the resulting requirements specifications are clear and accurate.
IAG’s Requirements Elicitation service is a very productive and cost effective way to obtain high quality requirements documentation, extremely quickly, using specialized requirements facilitation and documentation experts.
