Have You Ever Worked on a Project Like This?

With every project seemingly time- and resource-constrained—especially compared to how much everyone wants the project to accomplish—all too many teams can find themselves trapped in this scenario. We call it "schedule death by a thousand little requirements questions." It may seem like this is what it takes to be truly responsive to the project's customers, but if endless requirements gathering means nothing gets delivered on time, then clearly the customers' critical needs aren't getting served well after all.

The way out of any requirements morass is to stop looking at everything and start looking for what matters most. Even with a huge customer base to serve, with different stakeholders and multiple groups clamoring for attention, a ruthless focus on what matters most for the business can get a team to requirements clarity incredibly quickly. This session explores how to engage your customers with a few powerful tools and a mutual quest to identify what matters most, to help any project stay out of or get out of a schedule-killing requirements gathering morass.
