Successful projects need a clear direction and a definitive destination. This starts with a solid understanding of the business problem or opportunity that exists. A key skill-set to achieving this level of clarity is problem analysis.
This practical, hands-on course focusses on how to carry out problem analysis either before a project has been initiated or during the project’s early stages. The session starts with a broad definition of problem analysis, and then focusses on techniques for understanding the high-level “Why” and “What” of projects. The session continues by focussing on how to define a high-level Project Concept Summary.
After attending this course, delegates will:
✔ Understand what pre-project problem analysis is, and its significance in the analysis and project lifecycle
✔ Understand the importance of stakeholder identification, categorisation and management
✔ Be able to define a problem using a ‘problem statement’ and understand how successful outcomes can be articulated with Critical Success Factors and Key Performance Indicators
✔ Understand what a Business Use Case diagram is and understand its value in articulating scope during pre-project problem analysis
