Presentation Details

Are your clients always ready and willing to work with you; with each other?  Eliciting Requirements from business owners who don’t work well together is difficult at best.  Projects can be sabotaged by default or by a client who feels left out, ignored, unheard, or disagrees with the direction of the project.  Teambuilding may not be defined as part of the role of a Business Analyst, but if you can’t develop engaged and collaborative clients to deal with the good, the bad, and the ugly, how successful will you be?  

To manage conflict and develop cohesive and collaborative clients, you need to turn a gaggle of people into a cohesive team.  This session will give you tools to begin turning clients into allies making requirements elicitation effective and engaging.

During the presentation, attendees will learn:

  1. What is required to form a group into a team
  2. At least one new way to build trust amongst your clients
  3. Ways to begin building a cohesive team
