Course Description

7 Ways to Improve Your Requirements Elicitation Skills

Getting the right requirements from the right people at the right time for your project is a critical success factor for any IT project. Nearly every study over the past 40 years has pinpointed missing and misunderstood IT requirements as the primary cause of IT project failures and overruns. “Requirements Elicitation Techniques – Simply Put!” presents 7 requirements definition techniques that evolved from our work with customers to meet that specific challenge.

This course is a continuation of our Requirements Elicitation series. The previously published course “Requirements Elicitation Interviews and Workshops – Simply Put” deals with soft skills (i.e. how to run a requirements workshop) needed to elicit requirements.

This course defines the concept of requirements elicitation and explains why it is necessary. It presents specific business analysis techniques for identifying stakeholders, analyzing relevant business problems, helping stakeholders discover what they need and want the solution to deliver, and a set of key questions you need answered to initiate and manage the elicitation process. Applying these techniques will significantly improve your requirements elicitation outcomes.

“Requirements Elicitation Techniques – Simply Put!” will help practicing business analysts, future business analysts, subject matter experts, managers, product owners, project managers, and anyone responsible for getting the right requirements from the right people.

You will learn how to:

  • Identify potential stakeholders
  • Manage the requirements elicitation process
  • Track progress toward requirements completion
  • Define and analyze business problems to ferret out hidden requirements
  • Facilitate effective requirements brainstorming sessions
  • Use 10 critical questions to initiate the requirements elicitation process
  • Avoid “analysis paralysis”
