So you’ve gone Agile, so that means that you no longer have to create comprehensive requirements documents, right?

Remember the agile manifesto says that the goal is “working software over comprehensive documentation.”

So because of that, we can’t be nimble if we take the time to put together the documentation, right?


This month, we are going to give the real story about requirements in an Agile environment.

Requirements gathering and documentation doesn’t have to look the way it has always looked, but it must have some key elements. Learn how to foster creativity, yet communicate clearly how a change needs to be implemented.

In Part II of this session, we’ll have our experts give feedback on the submissions and talk more about creative ways to capture and retain requirements in an agile environment, enabling organizations to be nimble in their development cycles.

This webinar is the first in a two part series series on “Stakeholder Analysis” by Solutions Cube. Although this module is a part of the series – each module in the series can be taken individually.

Whether your project is large or small, it’s important to know who your stakeholders are and what they expect from the project. How are they going to be involved in the project and what kind of communication do they need? How do you figure out who the people and organizations are that need to be engaged in your project and what their perceived impact of the project is on the area they’re representing?

This is the first webinar in a 2 part series on Stakeholder Analysis. This webinar will discuss how to identify your stakeholders and obtain information about those stakeholders required to ensure that the project is a success.

Attend this 1 hour presentation to learn how to perform a stakeholder analysis, document the results of your analysis in the Stakeholder Register, and use the information to determine what key stakeholder expectations and communication needs are.

Most projects are not successful. According to a 2014 survey, less than 30% of capital projects are delivered on time or on budget.

Planning and executing a successful project requires finding balance between the project schedule and risk.

There are five schedule risk analysis steps project teams can follow to balance schedule and risk: schedule validation, model risks, risk analysis, results analysis, and reporting & monitoring.

With these five steps, teams can better understand the project plan – properly estimating schedule contingency, identifying schedule drivers, analyzing the impacts of risk against the project schedule and developing risk-based what-if scenarios, resulting in more successful projects.

Presenter:  Wesley Gillette (LinkedIn profile) is Director of Client Services for Safran Software, a leading provider of Project Planning & Scheduling and Project Risk management software for project and asset-intensive industries. With 14+ years of experience , Wes has previously held roles as Product Manager and Services Manager for Oracle Primavera Risk Analysis (Pertmaster) where in addition to consulting and training.
