Business Analysis 2016: Oh No! You Gave Me What I Asked For
How often do we hear from our sponsors, “That’s not what I was expecting,” or “I can’t spend any more time with you—I’ve already told you what I want”? Many stakeholders think once they’ve provided the vision of their solution, the project team should go away and give them what they’ve asked for.
During this presentation we cover techniques for avoiding the “Oh No!” Using scenarios and real‐life examples, we provide tips and techniques for not only for defining the real need, but for asking the right questions to uncover expectations.

- The importance of asking context questions
- The relationship between modeling and elicitation
