Vision and Scope Course

How are projects or initiatives created and defined? When is strategy defined and how is it communicated? When should we build bespoke software or purchase something from a vendor? How can we understand the scope of an effort and communicate it clearly? Whoa, that’s already a lot to think about. Goals, objectives, vision, scope, and strategic decision making are all essential parts of defining a product. In this course, we’ll explore methods to identify business needs and to document project vision in order to procure project funding or communicate project goals. We’ll learn how business analysis efforts change when a vendor solution is selected, and tips for making that crucial selection. Once the effort and build versus buy decision is made, we’ll learn to identify the scope of a project and how to document and verify that it is correct for a given effort.
