Chapter 2. Getting into the Details Early

We will be discussing the techniques that are helpful in the analysis phase along with a few examples. In this chapter, you will learn the following topics:

  • Requirement gathering techniques

  • Conference Room Pilot (CRP): This is an early validation for completeness of the requirements and proposed solution

You need to dive deeper to understand what you are up against. One of the common reasons why projects fail to deliver on time is that the requirements keep on bubbling up at a later stage. You should ensure that you have the right resources on board before you start discussions on requirements. It is the foundation for your project. Projects will fail if the requirements are incomplete, if the right analysis was not done to understand them correctly, or if you neglect to push back on requirements that do not add any value. All these cases will result in more work (often rework) and will impact the quality and timeline of the project.
