Recent PMI Study calls Requirements Management a core competency for project and program success - and does so for a good reason. 47% of projects run into trouble due to incomplete or changing requirements & specifications, lack of user input or unrealistic expectations. UX methods brought wild success to Apple, Google and other top players and it has been increasingly popular ever since. But what most magazines don't tell you is that it's not just the Design part of UX that makes it so effective! Attend this webinar to learn abut the not-so-glamorous, but extremely effective new UX tools and processes - for gaining accurate user insights, discovering 'missing' requirements and hidden underlying problems - the ones that business users would really like to see resolved first - even when they are not be clearly articulated.

We are expected to ask the “right” questions when eliciting requirements to identify gaps. Requirements risk management is an emerging concept in many high performing organizations used to provide guidance on what the “right” questions are. This interactive session will explore the hand-offs between project and requirements risk and arm attendees with information to begin addressing the #2 reason of why projects fail – inaccurate requirements - immediately within their workplace using requirements risk management techniques.
Organizations launch projects with the assumption that the new or improved solution will provide worthwhile benefits for stakeholders and a suitable return on investment. Understanding your business requirements can help ensure that your teams actually deliver those benefits.

An Agile BA goes far beyond simply eliciting requirements. They are constantly on the hunt for new and better ways of delivering business value. They apply systems thinking to the big picture, rather than trying to document aspects of a single approach. They are, in fact, drivers of innovation.
A recurring challenge for projects is the delivery of outcomes that meet stakeholder expectations. When outcomes do not produce expected results, the associated implementations that delivered those outcomes will likely be viewed unfavorably. Requirements definition is a well-known technique for specifying project deliverables and outcomes. Incorporating requirements definition into project phases can significantly improve the chances that the outcomes will meet expectations, and the associated implementation will be judged a success. Attendees will walk away with learning how to define requirements before project starts to improve project and outcome success, how the project charter contains the business analysis, and more.
Business analytics have the potential to drastically change how business decisions are made. As we begin to better understand how to harness the power of big data, IT departments will see a larger number of business analytics projects, which means a greater need to grasp how requirements process works in these types of projects.
