Managing Requirements to Ensure Customer Satisfaction
Requirements drive the system. A poor requirement set will result in a poor system implementation. However, good requirements, managed according to existing best practices greatly increase the project's chance of success and ensure customer satisfaction.
A clear understanding of the project requirements from the outset of the project is essential to ensure successful project completion.
This course will give you the skills you need to develop good requirements and manage them effectively.
This course is designed to teach participants how to collect and evaluate client or user requirements. Participants will learn techniques for clarifying project requirements, for establishing acceptable criteria, for resolving ambiguous requirements, for verifying requirements compliance and for managing TBDs and TBRs.
