This interactive workshop targets professionals who want to improve their ability to translate customer needs into project requirements and then defining and modeling the requirements using process and data modeling techniques.. Using a case study approach combined with checklists and templates, the course explores different categories of requirements and which requirements elicitation techniques work best for different stakeholders and types of projects. Participants learn to frame the project by understanding the problem, documenting the business need and by ensuring the project is traceable to this need.

Modeling the business and its requirements is a great way to uncover all the requirements and ensure their accuracy. Once you know the requirements are accurate, you can use the requirements models as specifications for the designers and builders of the product. The modeling techniques used in this class will be applicable both for Agile, lean and traditional development approaches. Special focus will be on business models, process models, use cases, and data models.
