In today’s hyper-competitive environment, innovation and time to market are the key pillars for success.

While software in applications and embedded systems is emerging as the primary agent for innovation, it is also adding complexity.

Modern innovations such as Agile have proven to shorten product delivery, but come with their own set of challenges.

The ability to empower all stakeholders to collaborate in a unified development environment can solve many of these challenges and increase performance.

In this webinar Jiri Walek will provide you with an insightful view of applying industry best practices.

Learn how a unified tool can:

  • Positively impact innovation and time-to-market through collaboration
  • Give you full traceability
  • Provide the advantages of electronic signatures
  • Highlight the benefits of centralized reuse and variant management
  • Provide the ability to utilize Agile throughout the Product Lifecycle

Presenter: Jiri Walek, (LinkedIn profile) Director Product Management, Polarion ALM, brings 10+ years experience in software product management and engineering to Polarion. Previously, Jiri worked at Disnet Software, where he established a track record of successful projects initiatives. He also worked as a software developer and architect on visionary projects based on Meta-Object Facility standards and model-driven engineering. Jiri holds a master’s degree in Mathematics from the Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic.

The life of a consulting business analyst (BA) presents many different challenges than those faced by “in-house” BAs – some obvious and some not.

As individual practitioners, consulting BAs have to be highly adaptable and able to plan and execute business analysis efforts quickly, in diverse organizational environments.

BA’s also play a role in the sales cycle: assessing tender documents, peer-reviewing proposals, and qualifying potential new business opportunities.

Version 1 is an IT consultancy in Ireland and the UK.  They recognize these challenges and have used the BABOK® Guide since 2009, as a key guide and reference to address them.

Hear from three senior consulting BAs at Version 1:

  1. Scott Coombs (LinkedIn profile),
  2. Keir Whytock (LinkedIn profile),
  3. Sean Ryan (LinkedIn profile)

They will openly discuss their practice challenges, and provide details on their approach to turn those challenges into opportunities.

Specifically, they will share how the BABOK® Guide is used as the cornerstone of their own framework to,

  • Build a thriving business analysis community of practice,
  • Develop a “consulting perspective”,
  • Build up their own skills development initiatives, and
  • Broaden the impact of business analysis in their organization.

You will also gain insight into the special characteristics of the different industries in which these consulting BAs work (including, financial services and public sector) and how they affect business analysis practice.

Foundation For Clear Requirements

Share

Online Course – Recorded  – $12.95 USD 1 PDU
Activity Type: Education – Online or Digital Media – Course
Presented: Solutions Cube Group (REP 2451)

This webinar is First in a 3 part series series on Requirements Definition by Solutions Cube.  Although this module is a part of the series – each module in the series can be taken individually.

In many companies, the Requirements Definition process fails
to define the “REAL” Business Need for a project.

What may appear to be great solutions are often developed without any tie to the real project needs. Unfortunately, the discovery of missing, out of scope, or poorly defined requirements often happens much too late in the project lifecycle leading to project failure.

Avoiding these costly mistakes requires a clear understanding of the requirements definition process and the right tools and techniques to define complete requirements for a project.

Solutions Cube Group’s Building the Foundation for Clear Requirements webinar enables participants to recognize the barriers preventing project teams from defining clear requirements.

Participants will learn how to create a requirements definition foundation that engages the right stakeholders, alignment on the project scope and progressive elaboration techniques for maintaining the right level of focus throughout the requirements definition lifecycle.

In this 1 hour in-depth webinar participants learn:

  • How to use the Project Scope Statement deliverables to guide the team’s creation of “real” project need and project solution statements
  • How to use collaborative techniques to lead team members through requirements creation activities
  • How to use the Wave Concept to progressively build requirements using collaborative techniques
  • Techniques for ensuring the Requirements Definition efforts are on the right track, from the onset of the project
