Topic: Elicit and Collaborate Like a Pro! Top Tips from an Expert

Excellent elicitation and collaboration has been cited as one of the key success factors in optimizing and managing stakeholder relationships. As business analysts, stakeholders are our main source of information on a project, so it is critical to our success that we understand and navigate elicitation and collaboration effectively. The problem is, how do we do it? How do we overcome inherent problems such as zoomed-out, stressed out stakeholders who don’t participate? What are the different types of stakeholders and how do we deal with each of them? What are the best techniques for each stakeholder type?
