Empathy when Eliciting User Knowledge

by David Davis, Lynda Carter
June 15, 2023 | 57:33 | Views: 10,755 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.58 / 5

Elicitation of knowledge is a human interaction. In order to be effective, a project professional must understand the view of the knowledge worker on approaching the session(s). We will discuss human relationship components and how they dictate the environment. We will look at the elicitation cycle and how the project professional needs to use empathy to optimize this cycle. Finally, we discuss the culture intelligence environment and how it impacts the use of empathy to help the knowledge worker feel safe in the discussions.

Save Time With Tools And Templates

System Requirements Specification

deliverable
by Dennis Torrecampo

The System Requirements Specification (SRS) document describes all data, functional and behavioral requirements of the software under production or development.

Strategic Requirements Template

deliverable
by Andy Jordan

This deliverable aligns with the concepts expressed in the article Strategic Requirements Management. This template should be used in conjunction with a more traditional requirements document to assist in the prioritizing of features and the finalizing of scope elements. It can also support discussions around changes in scope during the project. The cells below provide a basic summary of each column.

Requirements Management Plan

deliverable

The Requirements Management Plan is primarily used for communications, giving all stakeholders a view on how this process is managed for your project. It completely answers the very common question, "How are you identifying and managing your project requirements?"

Project Impact Analysis on Scope

deliverable

Even a small change can have a huge effect on a project. This impact analysis study will help you measure the effect of a potential change on your project's scope.

Requirements Candidate Summary

deliverable
by Andy Jordan

This planning guide will help you with the review and selection of project requirements to be included in the current scope. All requirements candidates are captured here, along with some basic information about them. Each candidate is then scored based on a number of different factors. The completed template provides a validation that the requirements ultimately approved are the ones that are the most appropriate for inclusion.

Project HEADWAY Change Request Log

PREMIUM deliverable
by Interthink

The primary purpose of this document is to track the status of change requests that have been created on the project. For smaller projects or projects where the scope is well defined, the log may not be useful. For larger, more complex projects, or for those projects where there is a lot of change, a change request log can be very useful.

Project Scope Statement

PREMIUM deliverable
by Cynthia Snyder Dionisio

The project scope statement details your project's deliverables and describes the major objectives, which includes measurable criteria for success. Use this template to document the six essential elements.

Get More from Your Sprint Review

by Bart Gerardi

A sprint review is an essential part of the agile process, where the team can demo new features and functionality. But the demo is only half the story. The sprint review is also an opportunity for productive conversation and feedback between the team and stakeholder, which will lead to a better product.

Backlog Refinement: 5 Things to Avoid

by Bart Gerardi

Backlog refinement sessions offer many benefits, but there are also well-intentioned activities—or antipatterns— that can be detrimental to the team. Here are five backlog refinement antipatterns to avoid, from focusing on estimates to removing requirements too quickly.

Managing Project Uncertainties

by Bart Gerardi

Project leaders must cope with many uncertainties, from requirements to schedules. These uncertainties can’t be removed but they can me managed and often mitigated. Here are some strategies and actions to address risks, reduce ambiguities and retire unknowns.

Do You Have a Good Intake Process?

by Bart Gerardi

Many project practitioners focus on execution and think their responsibilities start with the kickoff meeting. But before then, a good intake process can ensure a project is truly ready to begin.

You Can’t Schedule Innovation

The Hungry Man Parable

by Rich Mironov

What About Sprint Creep?

by Bart Gerardi

Scope creep can plague projects where timelines are established at the start, or budgets and resources are fixed. However, it should not be a problem for projects operating with agile principles. Rather than resisting change, an agile team welcomes it, and figures out how to adapt to it. Here's how.

Topic Teasers Vol. 131: Where Does the BA Fit Into My Project?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: Last week, I was told that there will now be a business analyst (BA) working with my project team. To be honest, we have all the roles filled. Why are we being assigned yet another person to deal with? Isn’t it enough that they also want us to work with a second team to produce the tangible portions of this project, while we do the software and other soft deliverables? Can I refuse to accept this person into the group?
