To learn how to estimate and plan for the requirements definition and management of a tradition or agile project

How long is it going to take to “do the requirements”? What approach are you going to use? Is a BRD needed? What templates should be used? What level of detail do we need? How many requirements discovery sessions will be needed? Who should attend? When should they be scheduled? What techniques do we use (use cases, process models, story maps?) What authoring and/or collaboration tools will we be using? What is our process for reviewing, verifying, validating, prioritizing, and managing changes?

As a Project Manager, Business Analyst, or Consultant you need to answer these questions. This course will provide you with a framework and template to assist you in the decisioning process for developing an efficient and effective plan and strategy for the requirements definition and management on your projects.
