Project Scope & Requirements Management   

This two-day course presents two key elements of success for projects: The effective development and documentation of project scope, and the gathering and management of project requirements.

Effective scope management and the presence or absence of detailed requirements for a project solution are generally accepted as some of the key indicators of project success. Through the use of discussion, hands-on exercise and simple case studies, students will be exposed to what scope is and how to develop and document it. The course will also address the types of requirements and the need for high-level and detailed requirements. The course will identify how to partner for success when incorporating stakeholders into the requirements gathering process, requirements-related project start-up issues, the essential elements of communicating requirements, and why being “agile" (applying the right amount of discipline and process) is important for project success. Specific tools will be demonstrated during the course, such as high-level and detailed scope statements, requirements traceability, risk management, and how requirements form an integral part of a project’s quality management plan. Students will work as teams, using case studies from actual projects to apply the techniques and practices discussed in the class.
