MEMPHIS, Tenn. - April 8, 2016 - PRLog -- Gathering business requirements is the litmus test for a project's success. Success is defined as being on time, within scope, and at or below budget. If the requirements are wrong or incomplete, the project will be unsuccessful. Unfortunately, while the methodologies work "on paper" and "in theory," they generally fail once people are added to the mix. This seminar focuses on the psychology, art, and science of gathering business requirements. It's for project managers and business analysts.

Do you want to learn how to solve this problem? Invest in this one day event.
