Poor requirements management is one of the top reasons for project failure. Misunderstandings, gold plating, and missing information can lead to expensive rework, project delays, dissatisfied project sponsors and product features that may never be used. Requirements Verification and Validation are essential to ensure the implementation of the right features with requirements that represent the needs of all relevant stakeholders. In this presentation, Marina will present how to close the gap between business needs and technical development using project management skills, tools and techniques.
