We all do projects, as team members, managers, users, support groups or project managers. Most of these projects are cross-functional and/or cross-business, in that they span multiple departments, groups and borders within an organization.
This program is for anyone who participates in or leads teams involved in developing and writing business requirements. Participants learn how to create the new wave of Business Requirements documents. The latest thinking is to be able to get to the market ASAP so there has been another revolution in the creation of requirements. For many projects it is no longer acceptable to have extensive Requirements Documentation. The major trends are to reduce text documentation and use different of models targeted at specific Stakeholders, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Communication should be efficient and effective to each Stakeholder. These deliverables identify what the project will do (and for whom) and what it will not do (also known as in-scope and out-of-scope.) This information is also needed by the Business Sponsors to decide whether or not the project should proceed to the next step, Functional Specifications.
