Preview Course Materials Course Outline

Getting requirements for data-driven efforts is especially challenging. Experience with traditional requirements gathering methods provides a foundation, but it takes more to be prepared for the unique challenges of data-driven projects—thinking creatively, getting beyond “just another report” solutions, engaging business stakeholders, resolving conflicts between business needs and data constraints, and much more. Old methods to elicit requirements don’t work well when requirements are vague, uncertain, and elusive, as is typical of data-driven initiatives. Shifting the approach from elicitation to discovery of requirements can make all the difference. Discovery, however, calls for new requirements processes, techniques, and participants. This course expands the requirements toolbox with techniques that step up to the challenges of data-driven requirements, describing proven ways to discover, analyze, and manage requirements for data-driven initiatives.
