Key to Success - Momentum
Our classes and seminars are about changing existing practices
to improve project delivery performance.
Change is always tough. Our experience tells us that momentum
is key to achieving measurable results.
As a result, we continually work on ways to remove
the barriers to building and sustaining momentum.
Three of the biggest barriers are:
- Inconvenience &
- Lack of Support.
We know that cost is an issue for everyone.
So, we removed cost as a barrier by
implementing Momentum Bsed Pricing.
about our new momentum based pricing approach - You won't be disappointed.
It is more difficult than ever before to get the time
to go to classes or seminars. As a result, traveling to training events
can become very inconvenient.
To make our calsses /seminars more convenient,
we offer two delivery options:
1. Bring the class / seminar to you - at your site
2. Deliver the class / seminar as a series of
1 and 2 hr. segments as a Teleclass or Teleseminar.
about bringing a class / seminar to your site or scheduling a Teleclass
or Teleseminar - You'll be impressed with the convenience.
Lack of Support:
The other big barrier is lack of support. After the calss
/ seminar, is when participants need support the most - while applying
what they've learned.
So, we offer free support to class / seminar
about our unique approach to supporting participants when they need it
the most - You can't beat this.
Consistency and Repeatability?

If you're looking for
a proven and verifiable approach for developing
quality requirements on a consistent basis across projects while accelerating
the development and maintenance life cycles and producing immediate,
measureable results, then our Requirements Definition Class
is what you've been looking for - we guarantee it.
Does the quality of your requirements vary too
much from project to project?
Do your IT and Line of Business Personnel speak
in different languages when defining requirements?
Are standard work products created and leveraged
throughout the development and maintenance life cycles?
Are you using a standard Traceability Model for
Are known requirements process problems allowed
to go unaddressed?
Do your IT and Line of Business Personnel train
Over 1,000 participants
have attended our class and seminar with 98.7% indicating that they would
recommend it to others.
This class is not for
It is for IT and line of business (LOB) personnel who believe that they
need to do a better job of defining requirements in order to improve project
delivery performance and are willing to change existing practices to make
it happen. If that's the way you feel, then this class is for you.
According to studies in this
area conducted by the Standish Group and independent feedback obtained
from over a 1,000 GS&A Requirements Definition class and seminar participants,
we can do a lot better.
We know that the inability
to define and manage quality requirements is one of the root causes of
poor project delivery performance.
|A recent study conducted
by META Group provides the following insight:
60% - 70% of IT project failures
result from poor requirements gathering, analysis and management practices.
The Standish Group's Chaos
Report concludes that:
A clear statement
of requirements ranked # 3 behind User involvement and executive
management support for reasons projects succeed,
and specifications ranked # 2 behind lack of User input that
caused projects to be challenged while changing requirements and specifications
ranked # 3,
and lack of user involvement ranked
# 1 and # 2 respectively as to why projects are impared and ultimately

How to measure the results.
How This Class is Different
Class is about making a change, tking action and getting measurable results.
And, it doesn't stop at the end of the day. Maintaining momentum
after participating in the class is
important for achieving results.
you ever felt like you really got it during a calss and then generated
a lot of questions as soon as you tried to apply what you've learned on
a real project? That slows momentum.
after the class, participants can elect to
receive up to 2 hours of free
coaching by the instructor. For continued support, participants
can arrange for on-going coaching support by the instructor on-site or
via the internet.
Both IT and Line
of Business (LOB) Personnel
In short, anyone interested
in writing, validating, using and testing requirements.
