Spectramind Technologies Presents Training Program for Business Requirements Elicitation

Spectramind Technologies Presents Training Program for Business Requirements Elicitation

Spectramind Solutions is a Charter Endorsed Education Provider (EEP) of the International Institute of Business Analysts (IIBA)

Course Overview & Objective

This 4-day intensive, activity-based course provides the structure and techniques necessary for the “Requirements Producer” to competently elicit and document quality requirements. Requirements define “WHAT” the business needs in order to modify or improve its current-state process into the desired future state. The Requirements Producer acts as a liaison between the business owners who have a business need and the technical personnel who know “how” to develop automated solutions to support the business processes. Within a project life cycle methodology, the Requirements Producer is any individual who is responsible for gathering, analyzing, documenting, validating, and managing changes to the requirements.

Customer, both internal and external, involvement is identified as the most critical element to process improvement efforts. The goal of a successful Requirements Management Process is to get a consistent interpretation of the requirements from all the stakeholders (any persons with a vested interest in the project outcome). Every best-practice technique in the activities within the five-stage Requirements Management Process enforces the involvement of the customers and stakeholders.

This course combines lecture, delivered by expert practitioners, a playful and fun learning environment, small-group and individual practice exercises, and class discussions on real-life requirements problems and solutions.
