Have you ever struggled with collecting and managing project requirements?  You are not alone! Managing project requirements has been cited as an ongoing leading contributor to challenged and failed projects. Especially today, with ever-changing demands on people, organizations and technology, the effective identification and managing of requirements can be critical to project success. This workshop presents suggested approaches, a framework and best practices for collecting and managing requirements.

The workshop covers foundational techniques through lectures, examples and especially hands-on practice exercises and would be most appropriate for individuals who desire to understand how to effectively elicit, verify, document and manage project requirements, not necessarily to the detail of a certified PM.  The materials are aligned to the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) A Guide to the Business Analysis Book of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide).
