Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Jamie Champagne, and welcome to my course, Managing Changing Requirements. I am an overly passionate business analysis speaker and trainer with my company, Champagne Collaborations. This course introduces you to managing requirements changes and how to get prioritization, approvals, and track all your requirements work regardless the change methodology you use. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include explaining prioritization criteria and the value of prioritizing requirements, identifying why approvals are important and what they look like on different methodologies, defining requirements governance to manage requirements changes, and how to analyze and present requirements changes so you can track and leverage your requirements for continued value well beyond your current change effort. By the end of this course, you'll understand the value of managing requirements changes and be able to define how to obtain prioritization and approvals of requirements while being able to present analysis work on requirements changes. Before beginning the course, you should simply consider your own requirements analysis skills and where you have worked with requirements before as this course may give you a fresh perspective on how to best approach your requirements management work. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into requirements analysis work and skills area further with any courses on requirements analysis, business analysis, project management, or any general change efforts, especially ones that require technical details. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to manage requirements changes with this course, Managing Changing Requirements, at Pluralsight.
