Jan 30, 2019 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Requirements are a key driver for any project and there is a direct relationship between the accuracy of requirements and the outcome of a project. In many cases their is a direct link between scope and requirements, hence requirement definition impacts project scope. Every project benefits by having a well defined project scope that helps define boundaries for the project, the primary outcome/goal/deliverable to be achieved and success metrics (what does "done" look like") We'll discuss how Design Sprint methods can be used to help project managers and teams at-large ensure alignment between current problem/challenge, scope of work and requirements for the project overall.

Terminology sections or documents are critical resources for implementing a standard. However, users tend to take them for granted as just being part of the standard. But did you know: • In what situation a word or phrase is selected to be defined as a term in the terminology document or section? • What science is behind the definition of a term? • How to find definitions of a term in various standards for free? • How to relate the meaning of a term to the meaning in common dictionaries? • The word or phrase will be not be adopted as a term if the intended meaning of the word or phrase is found in a dictionary? • If not, you are not alone. New terms are not adopted easily in standards. It's a profound process - dull to some - yet largely unknown to people.

Il n'est pas toujours facile d'orienter les efforts d'une grande variété de partenaires dans une même direction. Encore plus lorsque les citoyens et les citoyennes, des parties prenantes à part entière, sont touchés directement par les projets mis de l'avant. Que ce soit des projets ayant un impact sur leur milieu de vie ou qui concernent des enjeux sociaux importants, leur apport peut être inestimable pour qui leur laisse la chance de participer. La participation publique, un processus qui permet de se connecter aux citoyens et citoyennes, ajoute de la valeur aux projets à bien des niveaux. Cette conférence vous permettra d'apprécier les avantages de la participation publique pour vos projets. C'est à partir d'un exemple, la démarche sur l'éducation à la petite enfance, projet primé lors du Concours Élixir, que vous pourrez apprécier ce que signifie la participation publique, sa mise en oeuvre et son impact !
