All of you know how important and difficult the process of define and elaborate requirements for a product. Based on my experience, PMI standard and the other practices I formulated the secrets, approaches, for achieving project success.
I was invited by our PMI Moscow Russian Chapter, which had begun active work in Moscow, to speak about define and elaborate requirements process (my presentation was at Business Analysis Conference, November, 7th).
My lecture was in the Agency for Strategic Initiatives place in the Moscow city center.
And now I’d like to share my impressions from this event.
The topic had been turned a big attention not only from the project managers, but also from startups. More than 150 persons had been registered from the event.
It was very interesting discussion after my presentation, and I got a great feed back, and I had interesting observation.
Of course, I didn’t take the big discovery, just said about my view point and a lot of things are always known, but practically I think people don’t quite use it.
Discussion after lecture was very interesting. The people told about their situations and asked how could they use these secrets? I asked for these questions and I hope it was useful for them.
Some persons from startups said that it’s not about them, it’s only about classic story, about some government projects, etc.
But I think it’s a very important to startups. And we talked about it too.
For example, maybe some weeks ago I saw in the linkedin a post with the questions from one startups. These questions was about functions for their product. I was really surprised to see how people don’t know what to do and think only about functionality which have a lot of the same platforms.
For me to know how the people are working in the different companies with different projects was very interesting and useful too, because now I know that all these secrets is important, but maybe they need more explanation and instruction how could they be used.
Because of that now I’m working on the practice online course about it.
