Core Essential Project Management
Learn to manage change in requirements and keep the project in check.
Requirements are the foundation of any project, yet the number of projects that fail due to inaccurate or incomplete requirements is incredibly high. This course goes far beyond requirements gathering and deals with requirements management. Discuss the latest practices for requirements management from concept through to closeout, and how to properly select techniques and tools for each specific project type. Explore evaluation techniques that allow you to verify requirements early in the project life-cycle so as to avoid costly rework further down the line. Learn how to manage scope creep and clashes between project sponsors and project sponsors, through relationship management and negotiation techniques.
