Every project and team is under immense pressure to get requirements done fast, yet we continue to use the some of the slowest practices to get requirements done. This results in scope creep, changing requirements, and poor quality solutions that ultimately may not be what the users truly need.

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.
In this webinar, we will review the approach our team took to evaluating requirements management tools, the outcomes from the study, and a few tips for those planning on selecting and adopting a requirements tool in your organization.
