Self-Paced Online Seminar: Effective Requirements Management (20 Technical (PM) PDUs)


Why do projects fail? Research studies have identified poor requirements management processes (or lack thereof) as a leading cause of project failure. Effective (structured) requirements management processes address many project development/management issues.

In both traditional and agile project development, requirements are important considerations in the project life cycle. Successful projects are highly dependent on well-defined and well-understood requirements.

Implementing requirements management processes, in collaboration with stakeholders, can greatly improve project success rates, leading to consistent delivery of successful projects and improved organizational performance.

The seminar focuses on utilizing requirements management in improving organizational project success rates. It covers effective implementation of requirement processes in any industry, in the public or the private sector, including the tools, techniques and processes discussed in the featured article: “Setting the Course: Requirements Analysis Guides Project Success” shown on the front cover of the October 2013 issue of PM Network.

This seminar has previously been offered for PMI SeminarsWorld and at PMI Global Congress.
