One of the biggest stumbling blocks in delivering a successful analytics solution is identifying the requirements. Everyone agrees that there’s more to analytical requirements than data elements, visualization, and data usage—the process also includes identifying the stakeholders, prioritizing needs across audiences, and ensuring that the deliverables actually support a business need and decision. Developing requirements for analytics isn’t more or less difficult than for functional tools and applications—it’s different.

Succeeding in requirements development means identifying stakeholders, establishing accountability, identifying needs and functions, prioritizing deliverables, and ensuring that all parties have the information they need. This class will provide a simple framework for these activities as well as templates to help you collect information and communicate the deliverable details.

This class will delve into the specific activities involved in requirements gathering and analysis. This will include researching artifacts, clarifying business needs, and identifying the stakeholder audience. We’ll also offer methods for developing your interview questions and even provide recommendations for conducting interviews. Plus, we’ll show you how to collect the variety of business, functional, and nonfunctional needs into a document that delivers the details without overwhelming the audience.
