Many stakeholders think once they’ve provided the vision of their solution, the project team should go away and give them what they’ve asked for. Yet they are often unhappy with the final product. During this presentation, we address this common pitfall. Using scenarios and real-life examples, we provide tips and techniques for asking the right questions to successfully elicit information and uncover the real needs of our stakeholders.
This presentation focuses on the importance of:

  • Defining the business need
  • Asking both explicit and implicit questions
  • Asking context questions
  • Using a variety of elicitation techniques for exploration
  • Traceability
  • Building trust for successful elicitation results

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this presentation attendees will be able to discuss:

  • Three common pitfalls that prevent us from successful elicitation outcomes
  • How to ask hidden questions
  • Seven tips and techniques for successful elicitation
