Eliciting and Documenting Requirements

The Business Analyst has been described as the person who bridges the divide between IT departments and the business organizations they support.  For all of the tools and techniques to elicit requirements, nothing is more important than making the most of human contact between these two interdependent groups. 

This seminar discusses several useful approaches to gathering requirements, focusing on the facilitation of collaborative sessions and the clear translation of business needs into requirements.
