Course Introduction

Successful projects are highly dependent on well-defined and well-understood requirements by all stakeholders and a key measure of project success is stakeholder satisfaction. This includes business / project requirements, process and product requirements and specifications. Investment of time in requirements processes have proven to be key contributors to delivering projects on time and on budget that meet or exceed business requirements. It seems that many organizations attempt to deal with requirements by using different approaches in discovering and defining them and requirements activities as employed in many organizations today are unstructured, ineffective, or simply performed incorrectly.

This Oxford Management Centre Managing Business Requirements Using a Project Framework online training course focuses on requirements processes that contribute to project success. Participants will learn and practice defining the real problem, assessing the impact on the project and business, and identifying and managing stakeholders’ expectations, all in the context of strategic project leadership. The key to this online training course is the belief that most requirements can be documented in textual sentences. This is a traditional view of requirements definition and management that, for most projects, is exactly what is necessary to be successful.
