Requirements are the bridge between desires and reality, and therefore fundamentally shape the outcomes of change initiatives.
Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
The Performance Institute (PI) is proud to announce that Robbins Gioia’s Douglas Jackson, Senior Director, Requirements and Business Analysis, is to present PI’s latest research. His May 5 session at the Project Summit Business Analyst World in Washington, DC examines the root causes of the requirements problems within large, complex, and high-value projects and actionable advice.
“Requirements are the bridge between desires and reality, and therefore fundamentally shape the outcomes of change initiatives,” Jackson explains. The conference, offered in partnership with IIBA© Baltimore and IIBA© DC Metro, is a fitting platform to present the work that examines the “requirements problem” and its causes and solutions. The resulting report, “The Problem with Requirements: Why Is it Still a Problem?” explores the root causes of the requirements problem.
Jackson, a Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®), draws on over 20 years of professional experience to impart practical knowledge on avoiding common pitfalls of requirements management. He will also discuss how employing business analysis tactics and soft skills help improve a project’s chances of success.
