According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession, “When projects do not meet their original goals and project objectives, inaccurate business analysis/requirements management is cited as the primary cause 47% of the time.”

The increasing scale and complexity of projects is making it extremely difficult to assess and verify the project requirements.

As a result – a huge amount of critical errors in project and systems development arise in the initial concept & design stages.

In this presentation and workshop,  Mike Frenette,  and  Jordan Kyriakidis will focus on how harnessing automated computational tools utilizing Natural Language Processing can help project managers ensure their requirements are consistently clear & are a joy to work with.

Project managers, business analysts, engineers and by extension their clients, will benefit in the earliest stages of a project to ensure poorly written requirements do not infiltrate later project stages leading to reduced stress, increased confidence and higher project success.
