Course Level



The causes of the majority of failed information technology (IT) projects can be traced to poor definition and understanding of requirements. Changing requirements create more delays than any other factor. If you want to improve project performance, you must improve the way you define and manage requirements. They are the bridge between the customer who will describe, pay for and use the system and the technical community who will specify and provide the system.

Who Should Attend

This workshop is designed for systems professionals or business associates who will take part in defining requirements for computer systems development, business reengineering, procedural change or other activities that require the analysis of a business system. There are no technical prerequisites. Participants do not need prior experience in Business Analysis.
