Requirements by Collaboration: A Workshop Approach to Defining Needs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do you enable customers and teams to collaborate early on—and often—during product development? Are there ways to mitigate the cost and mistrust that result from misunderstood requirements? What can you do to engineer healthy teamwork among members of your project community? Collaboration workshops are a proven and popular practice that deliver results, deepen mutual understanding of product needs, and build strong project communities. Ellen Gottesdiener outlines the practices for conducting workshops—with names like discovery workshop, Joint Application Design (JAD), planning workshop, facilitated session—that are focused, fast-paced, and highly productive. These workshops are designed to elicit and verify product requirements, delivery plans, and related artifacts. Join Ellen to learn how to power up your facilitation skills to amplify productive collaborations. Learn:

  • How workshops differ from meetings, their business case, key roles
  • Workshop design strategies
  • Actions to be a facilitative leader when you’re not the designated facilitator
