    Determining a Project's Objectives

    This is one in a series of courses that focus on the phases of The Requirements Discovery Process. This course is intended to take the participant through a process of discovering, describing and documenting your client’s business objectives. Establishing high quality objectives is essential to the success of your project. If you don’t set specific, measurable, achievable, results oriented and time-bounded objectives, how will you ever determine the success of your project? On the surface, setting project objectives seems to be a straight-forward exercise - one that is often taken for granted, overlooked or simply ignored. Establishing high-quality objectives is an essential component to the success of your project. If you do not set specific, measurable, achievable, results-oriented and time-bounded objectives, how will you know if your project is successful? This course is intended to help you do just this.

    Describing Business Processes

    The descriptions of key business processes that you create during this phase of your project provide the context for all work that follows. For the requirements team, breaking the system into activities helps to focus discussions on smaller areas. For your business partners, it is easy to achieve consensus and buy-in at an activity level. For the project manager, organizing the system into activities allows the project manager to identify cohesive work packages. The detail gathered at this stage enhances the product description and confirms the project scope. For the design team, this discussion of business process at an activity level ensures the integration of the functional and data requirements and provides the basis for the software system specifications. And finally, for testers, activity descriptions provide the basis for meaningful test scripts that reflect actual business usage.

    Determining Functional Business Requirements

    This is one in a series of courses that focus on the phases of The Requirements Discovery Process. This course is intended to take the participant through a process of discovering, describing and documenting your client's business requirements completely, accurately and consistently regardless of your subsequent system development efforts. This means that whether you are specifying these requirements for a web-enabled application, object-oriented, client-server, legacy system or a combination, true functional business requirements are independent of technology. This is beneficial because you won't need to go back and change the business requirements as the technology changes (which is often). And we'll be applying best practices along the way so that the resulting business requirements you specify will conform to industry best practices in this particular area.
