Join Terri Wagner for an in-depth discussion in this video Stepping through elicitation planning, part of Project Management Foundations: Requirements (2015).
- You need to figure out what these new capabilities…for your project should be.…So from an elicitation perspective…you're actually going to have to spend some time…preparing for how to do it.…Thinking about who you're going to talk to,…what you're going to ask them,…and what elicitation technique you want to use…for each situation.…So you need to have a strategy for your elicitation.…How are you going to capture the information?…Are you writing notes by hand, typing on a tablet…or a computer as you listen, working in an interview team…with one person asking the questions…and another documenting during the discussion?…Are you validating what you captured…by asking something like,…"Here's what you said, here's what I captured,…"is that right? Did I miss anything?"…As you begin your project you may ponder,…"How do I get information, genuine, honest,…"straightforward information?"…"How do I ask good questions?"…"How do I get people to tell me what I really need to know?"…To help you plan, you may want to use…an elicitation worksheet.…
