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.

Having trouble deciding which questions
Are Your techniques producing desired
Are your Users getting frustrated?
Are you spending too much time eliciting
Do you know why?
Want to change all this in a hurry?
If you’re looking for
a proven approach for developing questioning strategies that work, our
Requirements Elicitation Class will provide the answers you’ve been looking
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 eliciting information for 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.
Requirements definition and
management activities are important because they immediately impact project
success - the delivery of increased value back to the business. Performing
requirements definition and management activities has become recognized
as critical to the success of all project initiatives. And, despite over
30 years of experience with these disciplines, we're still not doing a
very good job.
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 develop appropriate questioning strategies for use in eliciting information
for requirements definition is at the very core of the problem.
|A recent survey of
over 1,000 GS&A Requirements Definition Class and Seminar participants
revealed that the top three concerns with Requirements Elicitation were:
How do you determine the right
questions to ask?
How can you be sure you're getting
the right information?
How do you develop a reasonable
and reliable work plan for Requirements Elicitation?
