PDD 2018 Exercise Your Mind: Speaker Series - Episode 4


"The Psychology, Art, and Science of Gathering Business Requirements"

Gathering business requirements is the litmus test for a project's success. Success is defined as being on time, within scope, and at or below budget. If the requirements are wrong or incomplete, the project will be unsuccessful.

Unfortunately, while the methodologies work "on paper" and "in theory," they generally fail once people are added to the mix. Anthony Reed's presentation focuses on the psychology, art, and science of gathering business requirements. 

The Session 1 will focus on:

  • The Concept
  • Historical Overview of Methodologies
  • Who We Are & How Did We Get Here
  • Managing & Motivating Team Members & Executives
  • Training the Business Analysts

The Session 2 will focus on:

  • Selling The Business Requirements Process To Executive
  • The Art Of Managing Difficult Stakeholders

We are most in need of a restructuring or update of our website to make it more user friendly for our staff. Currently, no one at our non-profit can gain access to the site to make changes. As well, the appearance and content is out of date. We'd love to be able to use the site to communicate better with our clients and families, as well as the community at large.
