Live Webinar September 9 2011 – 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT
Duration: 1 hour webinar Credits: 1 PDU Category A $15 USD
Presented by: Solutions Cube Group (REP 2451)

One of most commonly overlooked or underdeveloped types of project requirements are those associated with reporting. Project stakeholders often wait until the end of the project to clarify the changes to existing reports or needs for new reports to support the project solution being implemented.

One of the biggest risks associated with addressing reporting needs this late in the project lifecycle is the team may have overlooked core functionality expected as part of the solution or may find that data required for reports has been overlooked or is not accessible.

Learn techniques for clearly defining which existing reports should be modified, which can be eliminated and what new reporting needs should be created.

Participants will learn how to drive out reporting needs beyond the more obvious reporting mechanisms by clarify business questions that will need to be answered as the project solution is utilized. They learn how identify gaps in business requirements and possible scope creep before finalizing the project’s requirements document.

In this 1 hour live in-depth Webinar participants learn about concepts for:

  • Defining core Business Questions expected to be asked and answered regarding operational efficiencies as well as support strategic decision making once the project solution is implemented
  • Using Reporting Qualifiers to determine how information used to answer Business Questions is grouped, rolled up and drilled down
  • Clarifying high level data entities used to answer Business Questions and identify sources and gaps of this information
  • Reconciling which existing reports will be updated versus shut down due to relevance to the business
