Private - Requirements Management and Communication (2 Days)
About course

The Requirements Management and Communication course covers the activities for managing and expressing requirements to project stakeholders. It is important to ensure all stakeholders have a shared understanding of the project requirements and all stakeholders with approval authority are in agreement with the requirements the solution will meet.  As the elicitation effort proceeds and the scope of the project evolves, the changes must be tracked and handled properly. Moreover, traceability and requirements re-use must be tracked as well.  Throughout the process, the requirements must be properly documented and communicated back to the stakeholders, to ensure that they are all on board with the project as it moves forward.  This course will help you improve your skills at communicating requirements and managing requirements over the life of the project.
