Rethink Requirements - The Natural Language Processing Approach

PREMIUM on-demand webinar
by Mike Frenette, Jordan Kyriakidis

According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession, “When projects do not meet their original goals and project objectives, inaccurate business analysis/requirements management is cited as the primary cause 47% of the time.” And the increasing scale and complexity of projects is making it extremely difficult to assess and verify the project requirements. As a result - a huge amount of critical errors in project and systems development arise in the initial concept & design stages. In this presentation and workshop, we will focus on how harnessing automated computational tools utilizing Natural Language Processing can help project managers ensure their requirements are consistently clear & are a joy to work with. These project managers, business analysts, engineers and by extension their clients, will benefit in the earliest stages of a project to ensure poorly written requirements do not infiltrate later project stages leading to reduced stress, increased confidence and higher project success.
