Setting Objectives

Quantified, Measurable and Testable. Specified so they are representative of the real requirements that your Stakeholders have and in such a way that your engineers/developers can develop towards them.

Some examples of Critical Product Qualities: User-friendly, Security, Performance, Reliability, Maintainability, Intuitiveness, Style, Correctness, Expandability.

Today, more and more sw and system developers are experiencing project delays and failures caused by unsatisfactory Project Qualities. The system developed has all the functionality, but the users are not satisfied with some Product Qualities like the performance, usability, security or reliability. In this focused workshop you will learn, and practice, how to specify the critical product quality requirements for your projects.

Track 1: Project management. How to:
Prioritizing and Decision Making for Project Management.

Prioriizing

using Impact Estimation Tables.

With quantified Product Quality Requirements, you have the basis for prioritizing the technical solutions that gives you the most benefit compared to the cost. This focused workshop teaches you how you can make such decisions. You will also learn how to evaluate the effect one technical solution (a password), have on, not only its intended Product Quality (Security), but also show its negative and positive side effects on other Product Qualities (usability). You will learn how to identify holes or weaknesses in your set of technical Solutions, and how to make sure you have a strong complete set of solutions to satisfy all your Product Quality Requirements within your development resources.

Duration: 0.5 day (4 hours)
Intended for: Project Managers, Sub-Project Managers, Project Architects, and Decision Makers.
Prerequisite: attendees must have a certificate from either “How to specify Critical Product Quality Requirements” or “How to Specify Critical Competitive Stakeholder Value Requirements.”

Track 1: Project management. How to:
Evolutionary Project Management.

Evo Plan ActAgile project management, but with management- risk control, dynamic prioritization, holistic overview and resource control, towards satisfying Product Qualities required by Stakeholders.

Typical “waterfall” project management methods are not dynamic enough for todays ever changing environments, and is not competitive enough for todays fast moving competition.
Typical “Agile” project management methods are better suited for 3 hackers than serious competitive projects with several Stakeholders and many dependencies.
Evolutionary Project Management - is both agile and give you management control. Is focused on satisfying a complex set of Stakeholder Requirements while minimizing the development costs. Has a proven track record from small one product companies like Confirmit to huge international companies like HP.

Intended for: Project Managers, Developers.
Prerequisite: attendees must have a certificate from “Prioritizing and Decision Making for Project Management” or alternatively “Prioritizing and Decision Making for high level management”.

Track2: Top Level Management. How to:
Specify Critical Competitive Stakeholder Value Requirements.

Setting Stakeholder ValuesQuantified, Measurable and Testable. Specified so they are representative of the real needs that your Stakeholders have and in such a way that management can use them to prioritize projects and make intelligent decisions.

Some examples of Critical Stakeholder Values: Effectiveness, Efficiency, Time to Market, Expandability, Flexibility, Security, Service and Maintenance Costs.

It is no longer competitive to just deliver a product or service, today customers have several vendors to choose from. Your products and services compete not only on price and quality, but above all on how well they satisfy the needs of the Stakeholders.
In this intensive workshop, you will learn, and practice, how to specify the Stakeholder Value Requirements in such a way that you can intelligently prioritize projects and make strategic decisions in a competitive manner.
