Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) October 18, 2013
Representatives with Watermark Learning announced today that it has released a new book: Practitioner's Guide to Requirements Management, 2nd Edition.
“The book is in full publication and is available in both paperback and Kindle edition from Amazon.com or directly from Watermark Learning,” said Mike McCalley, marketing coordinator and spokesman for Watermark Learning (http://www.watermarklearning.com/).
The new book, priced at $27.00, is written by Elizabeth Larson, PMP, CBAP, CSM and Richard Larson, PMP, CBAP, co-principals of Watermark Learning, Inc., a Minneapolis, Minnesota based provider of training services and course materials for project professionals.
According to the Elizabeth Larson, planning of requirements activities is essential for success, regardless of the project life cycle followed. She added that the new, second edition of this guide offers a practical approach, and explains how to manage requirements without creating a mountain of paperwork. She added that “it has been expanded with more coverage of Agile methods and contains a 40-page case study to help apply the concepts.”
Richard Larson stressed the importance of applying the right amount of requirements management rigor, before adding, “In the book, we provide critical success factors for all kinds of projects, 100 plus tips, pointers, diagrams, and tables, 40-page plus realistic case study, 14 plus worksheets and templates ready to use.”
As to how the book has been received by the general public, Rainer Wendt, PMP, CBAP, gave it two thumbs up.
"Requirements Management by Elizabeth Larson and Richard Larson is one of those books that after reading is not put back to the shelf, but which will get a special place on your desktop or become a companion while on the go,” Wendt said. “This is mainly due to the practical approach that the Larsons have chosen. One feels that the book is written by practitioners and supported by their experience. The book focuses on the planning process for requirements management and puts requirements themselves in focus. This book emphasizes that business analysis can never be separated from project management, and the integration of both disciplines leads to better project performance. The book also emphasizes that the cooperation of project managers and business analysts should be planned and agreed upon."
