Understanding the real scope of any project is vital to controlling the project. As a project manager or business analyst, it is key to first document the initial scope of the project and then direct, monitor and control the scope through Requirements Management techniques. Learning these techniques provide the ability to more easily control the quality issues, costs, time and risks associated with on-going scope creep associated with requirements changes.
This course will attack the issues of requirements changes and the impending scope creep that results if left unabated.
