How would you like to learn?*

So here’s the situation: You need to start building the project plan for the latest initiative, but you can’t do that because the requirements haven’t been defined. Sound familiar? Now you can lead the charge to get requirements defined by using the tools provided in Requirements Management.  Requirements management starts by analyzing stakeholders system needs (not wants), then validating these in a form that users find easy to read/absorb and then moving forward into design and development. Secrets to this vital early understanding include the approach used by a business analyst (BA) to elicit and analyze information and techniques used to model the users’ processes.
