7 Tips for Successful Elicitation - January 26
Join us for our January 2021 IIBA Seattle chapter meeting, in the cloud! We are very excited to have Elizabeth Larson as guest speaker. Elizabeth will provide tips and techniques for asking the right questions to successfully elicit information and uncover the real needs from our stakeholders.
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 from 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
- Building trust for successful elicitation results
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 context questions
- Seven tips and techniques for successful elicitation
