Free Webinar Recording: Who Are Your Stakeholders? presented by Linda Westfall on March 29, 2016
Before you can effectively:
- Elicit / analyze / validate requirements information
- Define / implement / improve your processes
- Plan / track & control / execute your project
you must identify and involve your relevant stakeholders. Identifying a complete list of product, process and/or project stakeholders keeps requirements from being missed, and provides access to a broader experience base and more extensive domain knowledge. This webinar demonstrates how to identify a more complete list of stakeholders. You will also learn how to determine your key stakeholders and define a stakeholder participation strategy for each of those key stakeholders.
This webinar counts as 0.15 ASQ RUs and/or 1.5 PMI PUs for recertification.
