Course Overview

"Getting it right” on any project is the ability to give stakeholders what they need, not necessarily what they ask for. Solid elicitation skills are the means of identifying real needs versus the stated needs and can make or break a project's success. In organizations with project professionals who use good eliciting skills to gather requirements, stakeholders have shared expectations and face fewer surprises, team members are more efficient in developing solutions, and project environments are more collaborative and productive.

Note: This course has been approved by PMI for 7 PDUs and by IIBA for 7 CDUs.
